    el-ahrairah forward communism, forward gerbils!

    Was it Bill Bryson who wrote at length about the glorious incomprehensability of local newspaper headlines, quoteing his favourite "Letter Box Rapist Strikes Again"...

    Not a headline as such but a title over a letter in the Whitby Gazette -'tips for catching crabs!'

    Would upload a scan but can't do images with my tablet.

    Sandwell Chronicle 4th Oct 2012

    Hazards of Wheelie Bins.
    Accident and emergency staff treated three people for accidents involving wheelie bins in a year, including a 68 year old woman who fell into one. Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs Sandwell, City and Rowley Regis hospitals, said the woman lost her footing and fell into the bin. A 39 year old man went to A&E after a bin ran over his foot, and a 42 year old man was hit by a bin weighing four and a half stones at work, leaving him with chest pain.

    I'm currently enjoying the comments section of my local rag:

    "The clowncil is being stupidly one-sided as usual, for the benefit of cyclofascists. Perhaps the reason that the taxi drivers are overranking and blocking the main carriageway is because the cyclists have provoked them into doing this. One-sided journalism and politics AS USUAL."

    I had to laugh at this, coley will probably have spotted it too :D

    Cramlington is shit as well. Decent butchers and markets in Blyth though... but it is a fuckign dump, parts of it look like the projects in The Wire.

    neonwilderness What would Badgers do?

    A couple of colleagues are from Blyth, I'm looking forward to a bit of office trolling about this when they are in tomorrow :D

    It's even worse over the river, Cambois is like something from The Hills Have Eyes :hmm:
