mouldy rolls

Here is the single most dramatic news headline you'll see today

So-so-so scandalous.

MOULDY ROLLS. A silent menace?

Twitter user Frank Paul discovered quite possibly the best headline ever on a sandwich board advertising the South Wales Evening Post:

Good lord. It just can’t be true. But it is – and the full extent of the family’s woe is revealed in the actual story, which you can read here.

Suffice to say, mouldy rolls were served at a family barbecue, and everyone was very sad about it. Some choice quotes include:

I immediately gathered all the burgers that were left over. They were mildewed. But there were only six or seven left as the others had been eaten.


I had had one and I felt physically sick. I broke down in tears. People had come along to my barbecue and I had served up rolls with mildew on them.

You’ll be glad to know that Iceland, the store where the offending rolls were bought, have since apologised to the family in question.

And peace settled over the land of Wales once more.
