A media distortion

I have to admit, I really can't resist a sight-gag.

So when my dad recounted the shock of unfurling the morning paper, I fell about laughing.



Remember folks: always unroll the whole newspaper before reading the headline about the new Prime Minister.

  11. Hilarious. Best headline ever!

    I sincerely hope your first lady PM is a LOT better for your country than ours was. Ok, she couldn't be worse, but still!

    Cheers,
