HEADLINES FROM THE WORLD PRESS

Each day we offer a sample of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

UK, The Independent: “Cadbury Faces Takeover”
Sounds delicious to me.

I bet there would be charges if the boy attacked the dog!

Sweden, The Local: “Doctors Can Prescribe Culture”
A dose of poetry for me, modern please.

Australia, Brisbane Times: “We’re Corrupt Say Russian Police”
This is what we term “non-news.”

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Companies Cut Xmas Presents”
The announcement was made by CEO, Charles Scrooge.

Canada, Toronto Star: “Invitation From Vatican Offensive”
I guess it depends on what was in the invitation.

Australia, The Age: “Wife Poses As Schoolgirl To Catch Husband”
Did she pose physically or just digitally?

If the hogs win, does that mean they become the Kuwait army?

You tell me, Count Dracula!
