Following my comments on great newspaper headings and the Dominion’s (as it was them before amalgamating with the Evening Post) “Chainsaw Wielding Cross-dresser pursues Westport Mr Whippy”, the Herald website gave us a pretty good one yesterday.
“UK man armed with crossbow tries to flee Australia on a jetski”.
He nearly succeeded too, managing the 140km journey across the Tores Strait to Papua New Guinea before coming stuck in the mud flats at his destination. Still, a great effort from a 57 year old Pom on the run from the police, showing the spirit of Dunkirk is still alive and well. And what a boring world it would be without these episodes of individual madness to keep us all entertained.
