Wise words to blog by

There are things that good taste and the law will simply not let you say in print. My current favourites are \”Murderer acquitted\” and (in a report of an Easter religious play) \”Paul Myers, who played Jesus Christ, emerged as the star of the show.\” Try and work out which one has the taste problem, and which one will cost you approximately half a million per word.

Although we should note that we rather like taste problems around here.

  1. but murderer acquitted is an oxymoron. If they’ve been acquitted then there was insufficient proof that the person was a murderer. Unless they’re talking about a prior murder they were convicted of. so the point about libel laws being silly is still valid, but the author of the headline is a moron.
