stay silent and be thought a fool, than open your mouth and remove all doubt show pictures of dogs in sunglasses than report actual news"
The picture shown is the cover of The Times newspaper (UK) on Monday 3rd October 2011. Yes, yes, our famous British press found nothing better to report on than the sunny weather in October.
I think that this was the day after Amanda Knox was acquitted from a media hyped trial in Italy after her conviction of murder was overturned.
I just have images of the editor-in-chief of The Times sat in his penthouse office stating clearly
"So we're all agreed then, we're running with the Knox trial on the cover?"
Then up pipes one of the columnists in the corner playing on his phone;
"Wait, WAIT! I have a picture here of a dog, and it's wearing sunglasses!!"
The editor, of course, immediately responding
"What the....!? - Right stop the press, this is it!! - sun in October, and a dog in sunglasses! - AMAZING"
...as he gleefully rubs his hands together imagining the additional copies sold due to this 'news'!
The reality; the dog isn't really wearing the sunglasses properly; it's like they're just their to look cool not enhance vision in the brightness. - Still it's just a French Mastiff, not a Collie, or Golden Retriever.
All that said, I shouldn't really mock it, I've had a great week, and I tribute a large proportion of it to this news article!! Bring on winter when The Telegraph will no doubt find puppies in snow shoes!
