This is a question Look! It's me in the Local Paper

Most local papers will print any old rubbish. Far, far too many years ago I got into the Windsor, Slough and Eton Express after winning a fancy-dressed-bicycle competition. What they neglected to mention was that I was the only entrant.

What sad stuff have you been in your local rag for doing? Scan stuff in and show us if you can.

Faked Name
This is from my friend Peter:

"I was selected with a few of my school friends to appear in the Surrey Herald, the Guardian and the Informer to show off the school’s Day of Modern Languages. Instead of asking for our names, the reporter asked us to write our names on a piece of paper. Being 16 at the time, I thought it would be hilarious to substitute my name for Paul Mascinbac. The following day, we decided to buy a Surrey Herald and found a ¼ page colour photo of us all with the caption, ‘Paul Mascinbac, Erik Hesketh, Louise Macdonald, Daniel Young and Daniel Southon, of Heathside School, discovering the Spanish culture’.

The school didn’t appear too happy about my fraudulent name, and coupled with another prank I pulled with a faked school letter advertising the maths-debating club, I got a week’s suspension."
