Slow day... (Tumbleweed)

And now, in local news...

My local newspaper's latest headline, screaming out from various selling points : Man Sent Naked Photo From Female Net Pal.

Am I the only one wondering just how this is news?

Yes, I understand that youngsters these days use net speak in everyday life. Yes, I've even gotten used to people at work pronouncing "LOL" as "lull" in conversation. But I draw the line when my mate's 16 year old stepdaughter starts pronouncing "ROTFLMAO" as "roffle", possibly "ruffle".

And I still haven't worked out what the f--k "rofflecopter" is meant to be!
