THE Daily Mail scuppered its chances of being taken seriously as a newspaper yesterday when it took off its size 13 steel toecapped boots to reveal an unsightly 'Dacre'.
The ugly growth may have turned the public's opinion against the Mail at election time by insisting the Mail run a pointless story about what Sarah Brown's toes looked like.
One Mail reporter said: "It's ironic really when you consider that Sarah Brown was at an event celebrating women's achievements, but all anyone can talk about is how this horrible little Dacre made the Mail look so ugly by writing about her toes. It's almost as if the Mail picked the occasion to make themselves look horrible to the public."
One cosmetic surgeon said: "The easiest thing for the Mail to do would be to get this unpleasant little Dacre removed as soon as possible. Just a few minutes with a scalpel and the Mail would look so much better. Failing that, you could just try and burn him off with a lighter.
"Besides, who really cares what people's feet look like? I've seen all sorts - weeping sores, exploded boils, septic wounds... and yet nothing as disgusting as that Dacre right in the middle of the Mail's face."
A Daily Mail spokesman said: "LOL, SARAH BROWN'S FEET. HURGH HURGH."
