News?

Sometimes Entertainment 'News' is interesting - I like to hear about the making of new movies, for instance. But it's definitely plumbing the depths when a story like this is highlighted as one of the top five headlines of the day. To save you from reading it, I've summarised the story as follows:

"Star falls over and almost gets wet"

I like trivia, and I know that's exactly what it is - trivial facts that mean practically nothing in the big picture. It brings a little light relief to the mundane and often dark world we live in. But this is ridiculous!

I read that as a star in the night sky falling into the sea somehow. That would be news surely?!

Ah, yes - that would indeed be newsworthy! Perhaps it should read "TV Star..."
