About

The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper that covers global politics, business, technology, entertainment, science, health and media. It is accessible from over 190 countries worldwide - now including South Sudan.

Our mission is to ridicule the timid ignorance which obstructs our progress, and promote intelligence - which presses forward.

 

Q. Are your news stories real?

A. No. Our stories are purely fictional. However they are meant to address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to real events happening in the world

 

Q. Recent media articles have accused The Daily Currant of purposely fooling its readers, and making no attempt to make them laugh. Is this true?

No. These allegations derive from an uninformed media narrative and are not supported by the facts. The Daily Currant makes millions of people laugh, and the strong majority of its traffic comes from readers who understand it to be satire.

 

Q. Who are your influences?

A. Bat for Lashes, Dave Brubeck, Regina Spektor and Jeff Buckley.

 

Q. Your motto is "cauta est et ab illis incipit uxor". What does this mean? 

A. The motto is a quote from Juvenal's Satire VI. The phrase literally means "the wife plans ahead and begins with them." The line directly preceding it is the much more famous  "quis custodiet ipsos custodes" or "who watches the watchers? The motto is thus a tongue-in-cheek reference to both The Daily Currant's mission to hold the powerful to account and its satirical nature.
