There’s some very odd stuff in the Telegraph’s ‘Weird News’ section. By which I mean that there’s stuff that isn’t odd in the way it ought to be. The Telegraph describes this section thus:
From the unusual to the funny and the downright bizarre,
we bring you a sample of weird news from around the world,
along with cartoons, blogs and games… because news
doesn’t have to be serious.
Let’s take a look at what they mean by that.
Those crazy Muslims and their mega-mosques! Those crazy councils and their planning decisions!
Anything about extreme weather seems to make its way into this section…
…as does anything about Julian Assange, apparently.
Because news doesn’t have to be serious.
Intimate partner violence: quirky!
How about that, eh?
