Just when you thought it was safe to chow down on the Burrito of Truth, along comes a fresh order of Quasidillas with Guacamole and Lies to double you over with stiff, irony-based jabs of hilarious pain to your lower abdomen! That's right: harder on your colon than that Thai sauce bangers & mash we ate the other day, it's the Rumour Renderer, serving up refried rumours with a smile since roughly three weeks ago.
Get on with it!
Cinemas worldwide have been inundated with as many as some bookings for the recently-announced Dimitar Berbatov film. For the making of Berbatov: A 66th Minute Substitute, producers filmed the Bulgarian during Manchester United's Champions League final against Barcelona using eighty-five synchronised cameras to give a real-time impression of the great man's artistry in all its glory.

Moviegoers will get to see him sit imperiously on the bench, exquisitely check his reflection in the top of Mike Phelan's shiny head and beautifully balance a biro on his top lip and pretend it's a moustache.
Loco-motion
Then, in the second half, he can be seen strolling majestically, heading a ball magnificently over the bar, strolling majestically and strolling majestically.

Sign wars
Odds-makers have been frantically adjusting payouts since the highly-respected gaffer made the statement. As one fat bald man told the Renderer outside a decrepit William Hill in Salisbury, "I'd assumed from the blogs and papers it'd be Manchester City first with every other club going into administration. This has changed everything."

Finally: which Korean communist dictator, who scored 623 goals in his nation's domestic league alone last season, is on the verge of joining City?
