Here are some new headline funnies, all spotted in the UK regional press… The ladies at the Saffron Waldon Reporter quite liked this one… (From an ad feature about a Cambridgeshire pub/restaurant – honestly!) But talk about stating the obvious…
Laughter is the best medicine and our regular round-up of press and media funnies aims to put a smile on the most downcast of faces.

If you spot one, tell us about it at email@example.com.
