This just cheered me up, I found this Morris doodle Gary made when I was saying I was nervous about drawing right into people's books with a pen (what if I make a mistake and ruin the book?) Gary was showing me how simple it was (he was right).

And I just read this wacky Telegraph news story, via Jamie Tweet:
Gay man tried to poison lesbian neighbours over three-legged cat feud. Wow.

Uh...wow. That's some headline.

Though I'm puzzled as to why the Telegraph thought mentioning their sexual preferences contributed to the story in any way- apart from making it an odd sounding headline that is.

How is it relevant to the story that the man was gay ? Or that his neighbours were lesbians ?

If they all had been straight, would the title have been "Heterosexual man tried to poison straight neigbours over three-legged cat feud ?"

Yeah, I don't think so, either.

I know, it's all terribly silly. But it totally sounds like a soap opera, and reminds me of some people I know. The Telegraph is such a, um, quality paper...

I just hate that "see those gay people, how weird they are" vibe...

Oh, totally! I am so not posting this as a piece of good journalism, just something that gave me a belly laugh on a really, really dreary morning. (Apologies!)

No worries, I didn't think you were. I was just pointing out the silliness of the journalists.

Seen from here, it looks like the UK have the worst newspapers and the best TV shows.

Agreed. This is precisely what I thought.

I thought the same thing when I read it....seriously other then adding extra words to fill out the header what does any of the people involved being gay have to do with the story.......or the cat only having 3 legs come to think of it.

And don't forget the three-legged cat - why draw attention to that!? Felineaphobes!
