Stuff what happened #2
I don’t know why it is news that virtual monkeys have nearly finished writing the complete works of Shakespeare: they’ve been writing the script for Neighbours for years.

Tense, nervous headache? Psychotic tendencies? Nothing acts faster than new Neurofen Plus. For all life’s aches, pains and bipolar disorders.

Silver worth £150m has been salvaged from a shipwreck in the Atlantic, believed to be the long-lost steam-ship SS Cash My Treasure.

A Christian cafe has been advised not to show certain passages from the Bible on a screen in case it causes offence, especially “thou shall not kill, not even for a nice cup of tea.”
Opinions are like The Only Way Is Essex: remarkably common and generally devoid of original thought.
Opinions are like cheese: they are always popular at cocktail parties, full of holes and often disagree with you .
Opinions are like Barbara Windsor: they will always have their knockers.
