Today’s best joke (from the British Press…)

“A GIRL of five has vanished just a short drive from where Madeleine McCann disappeared in Portugal,” according to The News of the World. I suppose that the journalist who wrote this story takes a three-hour drive, every day, to go to work – and another three-hour to go back home. Because from Huelva to Praia da Luz it’s a two hour drive, at least.

Another few samples of the excellence of British journalism:

"A girl aged five has vanished from a Portuguese town - in circumstances just like missing Madeleine McCann." (in: Daily Record)

"The development came as police began searching for a five-year-old Spanish boy apparently abducted on Sunday evening." (in: Leicester Mercury)

"Though they are in different countries, Huelva is the nearest big town to Praia da Luz." (in: Daily Star)
