The Betoota Advocate Round-Up
A collection of the best plus a host of new material from 'Australia's oldest newspaper', a hugely popular online satirical 'news' service
The BETOOTA ADVOCATE claims to hail from the Queensland town of Betoota (pop: 0) and be Australia's 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.
Now it's time to bring together the Betoota's best stories with a host of new material, including news, politics, the world, the town - even the classifieds - in an inhale-on-Christmas-day-and-make-your-drunk-uncle-laugh collection.
'It reigns supreme as the global purveyor of eternal truth' - Hon. Barnaby Joyce
'Nothing finer has ever come out of Betoota' - Hon. Anthony Albanese
'Betoota is not just a place, it's a state of mind.' - Hon. Bob Katter
