I Thought I Saw Some Rhubarb To Go With It, But It Was Just Celery With High Blood Pressure

You can see the details of the story here or here, but I love the way it led to one of the most ridiculous Evening Standard headline boards ever.

  1. Hello John.

    If you liked the Green Custard headline, here’s one from the Telegraph a couple of years ago:

    Half naked bricklayer on a bender lunged at police with a four foot didgeridoo.

    And my absolute favourite from way back:

    Nudist welfare man’s model wife fell for Chinese hypnotist from the Co-op bacon factory.

    You really couldn’t make it up. Well, I couldn’t.

  2. Fab ! Puts me in mind of the headlines section in the Fortean Times…
