That one about the crisps has to be a wind up. It's very funny though.vince noir said:This is one of the greatest local newspaper stories of all time, includes the classic line, "Mark loves his crisps, like all men"
A recent splash in the Neath Guardian read, "A DRUNKEN man took a goat on a joyride in a crime described by a district judge as one of 'immense stupidity'."
I'll take your word for it, the only thing that made me doubt it was that it was written by someone called James Crisp.vince noir said:100% genuine...
Fuck me.tangerinedream said:My favourite story ever in a local paper came from the Chorley Guardian. The headline was RAT SEEN IN SUBWAY?
On closer inspection, the story was about a man who'd got off the late train and seen something move in the subway, but was more than happy to concede it could well have been litter or something, rather than a rat.
This was the front page story.
In fact this week's SLP is full of brilliant stories. My favorite is about the bus route which has the most emergency buttons pushed in London. The first line of the story was 'Is this the route of all evil?'H.Dot said:from Tuesday's SLP:
"VICTORY FOR ASBO GRANDAD"
makes a change from the usual stories about stabbings & shootings.
