Dear Headline Writers, News Perusers, Bored People

I've come up with an absolute belter of a game you can all play at home, entitled Punctuate The News. The concept is simple: take an existing news headline, and - without adding or removing any words - change the punctuation so that it completely recontextualises the story.

I'll start with this zinger, which is perhaps unfortunate since it may prove hard to top:

Boss asked Savile about 'Rumours' which Bruce Springsteen had a thoroughly enjoyable chinwag with renowned TV kiddy-fiddler Sir James Savile about Fleetwood Mac's seminal 1977 album.

Now you try!
