Slow News Day

I think I've found the biggest 'filler' item in a newspaper ever... The Times today, about page 22, ran an item headlined "What you missed while you were away". Basically, it is a useless recap of the news in the last two weeks of December. Including such vital snippets of information like 'it snowed'.

The fact it is filler is further demonstrated by the fact that in the online 'newspaper version' of the paper, it doesn't appear. Wouldn't want to waste all those pixels?
