Satire? I thought you died, alone, a long long time ago.

Of course, thems of us that takes notice have known for a while that the state of the UK's  Sun newspaper is, at best, akin to, one imagines, Dudeskull's diaper. We have even joked about it on occasion and invented headlines eg "Obama kills old Arab chap", "Europe is a lorrer wankers innay?" et bleedin' cetera.
However one could, on increasingly rare, days take a molecule of comfort that there was a shred of talent behind some of it, some of it was not written by 14year old boys with antisocial, breast issues.
This was of course, hopelessly deluded. It does seem that a lack of interest in words is essential to work there, which is about as weird as a carpenter being uninterested in wood IMO.
With no further adieu, I give you this story. The comments are funny because they spot the fake from about 10 seconds after the story was planted. BUT THE TITLE OF THE STORY IS AN ABOMINATION UNTO THE LORD!!!
Also worth noting is, that about the time the story was planted, a Hotel group, now in administration, was saying that it was going to do this up into a 5 star hotel. Hmmmm
UPDATE:
It wasn't the hotel group it was the company director who took the photo. A website called "Ghost theory: A sceptical approach to the unexplained", covered it. I wonder if The Sun did? Possibly they pushed the bad journalist out of The Screamy Window.
He would have got away with it if it hadn't been for those meddling kids!

Oh for crying out loud. GHOST SIGHTINGS? Maybe Dudeskull should forgo diapers and just crap in The Sun.
