Day 14: Ripped From The Headlines

File photo: Washing machine

Head to your favorite online news source. Pick an article with a headline that grabs you. Now, write a short story based on the article.

My favourite online news source is the BBC and this was a favourite from last week.

Now, when you see the headline:

Australia police free naked man stuck in washing machine’ (BBC Website 06.01.14)

it makes it hard to turn away!  It’s not nice to laugh at the misfortunes of others, but this raised quite a giggle in our house.  Sometimes the truth is funnier than the fiction so, rather than writing a story (I’ve got a night out booked on a school night – I feel very daring), I’ll let you read the original and be entertained by the truth!
