Puns Intended

Via No Rock & Roll Fun, the South Wales Echo makes a mountain out of a molehill with a heroic pun of a headline: Strolling Jones gathers Kate Moss. Yup, Mick Jones of the Clash went to pick Kate Moss up from the Cardiff train station.

Best headline I ever read was the Sun's "Super Caley Go Ballistic, Celtic Are Atrocious", celebrating the victory of severe underdogs Caley Thistle over Celtic in 2000. Also up there was the Boston Herald's "Felonious Monk Had Heavenly Resume", on a con man who impersonated a priest.

Speaking of visiting Wales, Cardiff is a very lovely city, or at least it was when I visited 7 years ago. Stayed at the Cardiff Backpacker when it first opened. Has it really been that long? Beautiful scenery, fun people, and Cardiff Castle was fun to see, with its strutting peacocks and what not. This was before my month travelling around Wales made me realise that Wales has castles like Singapore has Starbucks, apparently - there's one in every corner.



I quite liked "Don't Mention The Score" after England beat Germany 5-1 at football.


Cool - which paper said that?


The Sun, natch.
