    The most cryptical headline I've seen was one I saw last year on one of the London freesheets: REAL SNUB DROG.

    I had no idea counterfeit snubdrog had become such a problem. Maybe we need a Campaign For Real Snubdrog?

    Yeah, I worked out the 'Real' bit - it still sounds like Beat poetry to me, though.

    Yeah Noel that was it. Was the frowny for the club in general, or for the fact that it's now closed?

    There's a great unintentional one in this weeks Closer actually. The headline concerning Peter Andre is supposed to read (I think):

    I NEED TO ACT, LIKE MY WIFE (note the comma)

    But what it actually says is:

    I NEED TO ACT LIKE MY WIFE

    which conjures up the unforgettable image of Peter Andre having a compulsive need to dress up in drag and try to pass himself off as Jordan. Well it did for me anyway, earlier when I was pissing myself in the supermarket.

    Cos it's closed. Cheap pints, table football, heavy system, nitrous oxide... Fun times.

    There was a headline in the Liverpool Echo about the proliferation of cheap drugs in town and the dangers of kids getting hold of them:

    "2 ECSTACY TABLETS FOR 5 POUNDS"

    But it came off like some sort of promo offer, I half expected to find a coupon and list of participating dealers inside.
