The scary thing is that this person is being paid to come up with this Pony and Trap! You can do a lot better Hereford Times!

Dippy - sorry you're not amused.

I can't see anything wrong with a bit of lighter stuff in the paper.

Ok, the film names are pretty awful but how about a daily poem to warm the heart (over to you Dippy)?

A few classics spring to mind -

A Fistul of dollars (1964) - all that's left in the council budget
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring (2003) - the local pothole season
Rocky (1976) - our lane
Notorious (1946) - take your pick
The Avengers (2012) - commenters on here
Gone with the Wind (1939) - my greenhouse, a few trees and hours of electricity
Unforgiven (1992) - Jarvis?
Apocalypse now (1979) - everything if you believe the press
Spirited away (2001) - a good fraction of the money we used to have
Raging Bull (1980) - Bobby47

Running on Empty – our council
The Great Escape – leaving Worcestershire
Mission Impossible – Bull’s win FA Cup
Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls – lack of toilets
Midnight Express – the train to London during engineering works
The Accidental Tourist – passing driver who needed a break from traffic jam
The Quick and the Dead – pedestrians crossing a city street
No Way Out – lack of bypass
The Sting – council tax demand
When Hell Was In Session – council budget meeting
The Grapes of Wrath – local cider
Never on Sunday – lack of free parking
North by Northwest – the road to Knighton
The Silence of the Lambs – Hereford abattoir

Strange use of the HT's space to 'fiddle' about with film titles. There must be some interesting news for us locals - BUT, I couldn't resist the chance to mess about a bit myself. I am easily amused!!!
By the way, what's happened to your superb examples of poetry?
