It should be a fundamental law of newspapers, if you’re going to run a story with a headline about witches, you should check there isn’t a photograph of three women nearby that could cause hilarity and confusion. Three is the optimum number for witches, as any Shakespeare fan can tell you.
This is the front page of today’s Daily Telegraph. It is remarkable not only in that there’s an amusing juxtaposition between the lead image and the lead headline (which do not refer to the same story, I should probably make that clear), but also in that, if you’re going to call three women witches by accident, you may as well go the whole hog and make those women three generations of the Royal Family.
Outstanding work, the Daily Telegraph.Read More
