Darwin’s Northern Territory News often displays screaming headlines about crocodiles, which are an ever-present danger in its vast circulation area.
One day recently (November 30, 2012) it published a front-page story captioned FROG STRUCK DOWN BY LIGHTNING ... and a few humans were hit too. It also published a poster showing a picture of a dead frog.
Many readers thought this hilarious. Dan Thorne, in the UK online news magazine TNT, wrote Stop the press! Frog hit by lightning makes the front page in Aussie newspaper NT News.
Incidentally, the NT News is a small dinghy in Rupert Murdoch’s global fleet of newspapers.
