It's nice to see humour making headlines

By Lindy McDowell

My favourite headline of the week thus far is, 'Fisherman who exposed himself in Northern Ireland Tesco blames language mix-up during sausage theft interview'. That's a lot to take in. But real life, as we know, can so often throw up the unlikely.

The late Eric Morecambe used to do a skit on the Scottish football results, with his favourite tongue twister being East Fife, four; Forfar, five.

At the weekend we learned, the two teams actually produced that same score line, albeit on penalties.

A defeat for East Fife, but a nice wee win for humour.
