Local news for local people

Stupidity, Media No Comments

Spotted an amusing bit in the local paper today. There’s a hotel down the road, the Empire, that opened 100 years ago yesterday. It’s now upmarket retirement apartments, and the residents held a party to celebrate. One of them was interviewed by the paper and said, “We are celebrating because it only happens once every 100 years.”

Sorry to disappoint, but I’m pretty sure that a centenary only ever happens once…
