Publishers Description: A collection of the best plus a host of new material from Australias oldest newspaper, a hugely popular online satricial news service The BETOOTA ADVOCATE claims to hail from the Queensland town of Betoota (pop: 0) and be Australias oldest newspaper. Since venturing online in 2014, it has quickly become a player in online news and entertainment, punching far above its weight, given not a word of it is true, and it was launched by three young blokes with not much more than a laptop and a distinctively larrikin Aussie humour. Several of its so-called news stories have been reported as fact by major news services, including Channel Nine, which reran the story of a parking policeman who booked himself, and radio 4BC, which re-reported the story of 78-year-old Reg Slim Flynn, a former prize fighter who took out three would-be home invaders. Now its time to bring together the Betootas best stories with a host of new material, including news, sport, human interest, crosswords - even the classifieds - in an inhale-on-Christmas-day-and-make-your-drunk-uncle-laugh collection. The Betoota Advocate shall reign supreme as the global purveyor of eternal truth - Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce
