This was sent to me by a friend of a friend of someone working for ITN in South America – I am assured that it is real.

And this is just some beautiful juxtaposition. Charlie’s alternative headline: ‘Toycoon death plunge after Buzz jetpack failure’. Perfect.



  1. Yes, it’s real. And it’s more than a month old. Can we let it go, please?

    • Now I am the first to admit that not many circumstances justify quoting Sting at a person, but on this occasion, just for you: “Manners maketh man as someone said.”

      It was new to me and new to everyone I showed it to at work. So give yourself a pat on the back for having your finger so superiorly firmly on the pulse, and quit ya bitching!
