Each day we offer a selection of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.
China, China Daily: “Giant Squids Invade San Diego”
These days with the California budget deficit, the only question is –did you guys bring money to spend?
Papua, New Guinea, National: “Prison Break Alert”
I think the prisoners are very considerate to alert guards as to the break time.
Australia, Canberra Times: “Taxi Driver Acquitted Of Stabbing”
However, he was convicted of over-charging.
UAR, al-Arabiya: “No Islamic Attire By Pool”
I have a hunch Islamic pool attire does not OK a bikini.
Sweden, The Local: “Big Brother To Watch You”
Is this gender discrimination– it’s never Big Sister watching you.
UK, Guardian: “Which Words Make You Wince?”
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Palin, etc…
Australia, Sydney Morning Herald: “Wife Killed On Cruise-Husband Held”
I don’t think this is what she thought a “heavenly cruise” meant.
Canada, Toronto Star: “Do Some Digging Before You Take Back Ex-Spouse”
Is it digging or checking the bank account?
Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Tourist Attraction Down Toilet”
This is the type of shitty reporting that irks me.
