Headlines that are enough to make your hair curl

Saw the following headline on the BBC News website:

Theft dismays Australia curlers

Which serves to highlight the fundamental difference between The Land Down Under and The Great White North:

“Police say the thieves probably thought they were taking a lorry full of alcohol from a secure car park at an ice rink.”

“They might be valuable… but that won’t do you any good. They could sell them to the Canadians, but they’ve got their own rocks.”

Yes, we do have lots of them… which is why:

“Australia is currently ranked 12th in the world for men’s curling. Canada is ranked 1st, with Scotland 2nd.”
