There used to be a fantastic blog pulling together local newspaper “outrage” stories and the inevitably hilarious staged photos that went with them. Just had a look and I can’t find it now.

When I was a kid I went to a local brownie group, and someone broke into the hall and stole all the hula hoops and beanbags or something. The local newspaper photographer made us all line up against a wall and look sad/angry about it, and being 7 everyone massively overdid it. My dad clipped it out of the local paper and pinned it up in the kitchen because he thought it was such a ridiculous photo.
