Name That Newspaper

If you were starting a new national newspaper, what would you call it? All the good titles seem to have been used so it takes a bit of imagination to come up with something that hasn't been used before but which makes sense and sells your message.
Let's see what you can offer. Smiley

Re: Name That Newspaper

Where on earth do you think of all these odd questions to ask?
You definitely have an over active imagination!!!

I shouldn't be living alone. Perhaps I should get one of those sheltered houses with someone who comes and checks up on me from time to time.

Well if it's to be as accurate in it's reporting as all the other "newspapers" we have at the moment, how about Grimm's Fairy Tales?

Re: Name That Newspaper

No "misunderstood" is what your response was in respect of  the question.  He likes being awkward so as to get some interesting and varied replies!  If people were not "awkward|" and asked these sort of questions then things would be even more boring than they are lately on this Forum!
Where has the humour and repartee gone?

Re: Name That Newspaper

That's what I love about these forums - endless debate about the motives of the person asking the question and nobody answers the question. Wink
Come on someone must have some ideas!

Re: Name That Newspaper

I have a perfect name for one but I can't put it on here as would fall foul of the rules  (PM me if you want to know)
