5.7m May Have Come From Brothels
That was the banner headline late last week, and being in a certain creative and critical mood, I decided not to read the news story, but come up with a few hooks of my own...
Likely: "We simply can not believe that £5.7 million came from brothels."
Unlikely, but practical: "Another missed opportunity to fix the defecit passes by as sources reveal that up to £5.7 million may have come from brothels, but didn't."
Possible: "A study into population and parenatge has shown that nearly 5.7 million UK citizens can claim and register their conception and possible birth in brothels."
True, but likely to be unreported: "Last night's traffic and travel statisitics show that 5.7 million people may have been on their way back from a brothel."
Vulgar: "Chaos on the roads yesterday as brothels may have made 5.7million come."
To be honest I prefer a world where news isn't fact, but rather a world where sound bites and headlines are left fully open to interpretation and kneejerk reactions. Come to think of it, so does Rupert Murdoch...
Nanowrimo seems to be sucking my brain away...
