Jaw-dropping excitement from the Kasabian camp via Gordon this morning:
Bloody hell - did somebody toss a hand grenade at Kasabian, then?
Erm... not quite:
Oh. So it's not actually the "most rock and roll death", it's rather "a recreation of one of the weaker Coronation Street plots of the last couple of years", then.
Indeed. When was the last time someone was killed in the UK by a undiscovered wartime ordinance? Not, I suspect, since closer to the Second World War.
Although given it had been lying in the garden for sixty odd years and was only turned up by building work, it's more than likely that the grenade was happily buried. And may well have been past the point of exploding anyway - the army treat all of these cases as if they might be dangerous, but that doesn't mean they are.
Serge hints that this is his Cobain moment:
Only the good ones, Serge.
But then comes the kicker:
Move in? So you weren't even living there when the grenade was found? This, then, would be a near-death experience in the way a Ryanair airport is near where it says its flying to.
Paul Thompson finds space in Gordon's columns to report a shock:
By PAUL THOMPSON
MADONNA sparked a political furore yesterday — by comparing US presidential candidate JOHN McCAIN to ADOLF HITLER.
She sparked this furore "yesterday", did she, then? Not on, erm, Saturday, when she first flashed the pictures up?
Ah, but, no, because a Sun reader might wonder why, if she made the comparison on Saturday night, the paper didn't notice until Tuesday morning.
