Friday Funnies: Headlines and pics that went astray

Well, the silly season is well and truly over, and the big return to work is upon us – so what better to cheer us all up than another helping of Friday Funnies?

Keep them coming to

First off this week, a Liverpool Daily Post headline about a recycling initiative in the Wirral that somehow managed to get itself attached to a story about a tube strike in London.

In a similar sort of vein, we’re not sure what the relationship is between this North Devon Journal story about redundancies at a local college and a pair of pantomime dames, but one HTFP reader wondered if it meant the college’s governance has officially descended into farce.

Now that the election is over, it seems at least one regional title is running a bit short of election notices (from the Yorkshire Post)

And this topical online poll from the Ely Standard website probably could have done with slightly tighter subbing…

Finally, it seems that whoever wrote this headline from thisiskent could do with brushing up on their medical knowledge.

Some of these Funnies would be a lot funnier if we could actually read them!!

    Mr short sighted: in your tool bar, click on ‘Page’ and you’ll see an option of ‘Text Size’ click on this to increase text size. May help?

    Unfortunately the text size thing does not change the size of the screenshots.
