I love the Gulf Daily News (Bahrain's top English newspaper), who always enjoy turning the most simple things into grand scale news reports. I mean, you will not find more amusing source of non-newsworthy articles anywhere else in the world; lets take a look at one from today:
Youngsters go bananas in store...Yep. That's a totally news-worthy article right there.
Wednesday, 26 March 2008
TWO Bahraini youths, who were caught stealing bananas from a shop in Muharraq were released from custody without any charges and allowed to keep the fruits by the owner.
"The defendants were lurking around in the store before they were spotted trying to steal the bananas by an employee," a Public Prosecution spokesman said yesterday.Gotta love the vocabulary. Makes the event sound oh so exciting.
"They were immediately reported to police by the Bahraini shop owner after she was informed about the incident. When they were taken to the police station they denied the charges."Oh no, they denied stealing the bananas; this is getting more intriguing! So what really happened?
"However, during interrogation, both confessed that they did not mean to steal anything but were craving for the bananas and did not have money to buy them." The shop owner decided to drop the charges against them and let them go with the bananas.Awwww, that's so sweet. They were just craving the bananas, so he let them go. Beautiful ending to a beautiful story.
Gotta love Bahrain. We may not have any live comedy clubs, but we got all the funny we need right here, in the papers of the GDN.
