Friday Funnies: When is a fatal injury not final?

After a few fallow weeks, we’re pleased to present another vintage collection of Friday Funnies here today.

Thanks as ever to our eagle-eyed readers for their contributions, and keep them coming to editor.htfp@and.co.uk


First off this week, we’re not surprised this injury ended former Elland Road star Lucas Radebe’s career. Perhaps more surprising was the fact that he survived to write a book about it

Needless to say, the Yorkshire Evening Post swiftly changed it to ‘final injury,’ although perhaps ‘fateful’ would have worked just as well.


Next, can anyone identify the mystery five-piece female outfit who somehow found their way into a Brentwood Weekly News report about a benefit gig for homecoming troops by chart-toppers The Saturdays?

For the record, here’s what the real Saturdays actually look like.


Over to the Daily Mirror now, and proof if ever it were needed that one letter out of place is all it takes…..


In a somewhat different vein, here’s a rather sorry little tale from the Western Daily Press. You’ll have to read to the last paragraph to get to the punchline.


Finally, some general weirdness from the Lancashire Evening Post.

We’re not sure whether it’s the building in the picture or the picture itself that’s meant to be the eyesore, but this reader comment seems to sum it up.

    Maybe the Lancashire Evening Post might like to employ a professional photographer rather than a scribe with a point and shoot. There a few of us available for hire right now I believe…

    I don’t know what all the fuss is about all of a sudden with cats being shoved in bins. Top Cat lived quite happily in a bucket for years.

    I use to have a drug problem, now I am addicted to sex in shop doorways. Oh, and you have all done very well.
