Gaddafi Clearly Deranged - Declares Led Zep ‘Heavy Rock’ Band
Rock impresario and part-time dictator, Colonel Gaddafi, has stunned the world of popular music by declaring Led Zeppelin to be a heavy rock band, thus confirming his deranged state of mind and seeding doubts as to whether he originated from an M-Class planet.
Music experts the world over have maintained for decades that the legendary and influential band, who disbanded over 30 years ago on the death of drummer John Bonham, defy attempts to be pigeonholed into any specific genre.

Divorcing Couples to Endure Another 5 Minutes Together
Divorcing couples will be forced to endure the excruciating pain of a session with disinterested prats from the family mediation services before they are allowed to go to court to trash each other, the government is announcing.

Sauron is believed to be assisted by Orcs for Aukland.
Adverts have also been placed in the Christchurch Advertiser for some Halflings to undertake a suicide mission to Mount Doom. The job spec stipulates previous experience with Ring Wraiths.
Mobile Phones Make You Annoying, Research Confirms
A study by the National Institutes of Health in the US suggests that mobile phones could have an effect on the brain.

Lost Enid Blyton Book Unearthed
Publishers cannot understand why the lost Enid Blyton book, recently discovered in a collection of manuscripts, was never published by the famous children’s author.
“Five Lose it in a Warehouse” would have been an instant best seller, they maintain, although it may not have resounded with her traditional readership, who are currently more into the bloodthirsty Call of Duty – Black Ops.
