My daughter was in class with John Fogerty's daughter, hubby was proper star struck, he was a huge fan. He is a really nice guy, one of the most down to earth people in that stuck up school. Daughter got to sing on stage with him at the school concert, which was rather cool

I LOVE Betty's.

Specially after a wee yomp around Mother Shipton's.

Yes, that one gets the full 10 points.

It really does read like one of those "write a grammatical sentence containing all these words" sort of problems.

One of the commonest comments (!) on the Daily Fail pages is the request that they employ at least one proofreader. I assume most of these headings and articles don't appear in the 'real' paper unchanged.
