Breaking News Drinking Game

The PM edition of the Tribune-Review features a story with this rather ambiguous headline: "Armed Men Looking For Drugs". One expects a certain amount of detail in the story to explain who these men were and what kind of drugs they were looking for. The uncredited writer may as well have summed the whole thing up in one sentence: "A group of armed men scared an old lady while looking for drugs last night".

Go and read the article as posted on the Trib's web site. Take a swig of your beverage of choice everytime you come across the words "the men". Refresh the page. Read and swig again. Repeat until you can't find the keyboard.

Why even bother to report this story when there's nothing to report?
