Peer reveals 'cello scrotum' hoax.

I quite often read stories on the BBC on the strength of silly headlines, but normally I have some idea of what the story will be about. And normally they don't use the word scrotum.

I have been to see lots of shows in the last week or so and had a jolly good time. I would write up about the lovely things, but I have to go and write lyrics first.

Apparently, doing this isn't likely to damage the scrotum

Man, wouldn't you like to be the BBC sub who gets to write those captions? :D

Oh my god, and the crosshead reads "Scrotal flak". Amazing.

I would go see a band called scrotal flak. Actually, I want to form a band called scrotal flak.

You have been warned.

no-one faced the sack for failing to spot the implausible condition.

In Edinburgh I saw singing duo Adams & Rea summate the anguish of the commuter through ska, featuring the memorable wail: "ow... your cello case is in my coccyx".

Next I would like a BBC news story warning against putting all your Basques in one exit. Thankyou please.
