Found 14th Jan 2009
In conversation with young relatives recently I shared a game we had at uni. Let me say first that these were simple times before satellite TV but the young chaps thought it was hilarious so...

We used to compose letters and send them to agony aunts in the women's mags to see how often we could get published. A favourite was "I think I might be gay as I like to look at naked women". Over 3 years one guy got over 20 published.

This was probably the equivalent of the (I assume) frequently made up issues on forums like this but it was more of a challenge.

Let the flaming begin!

How about 'I think I may have a drinking problem. My G/F is training to be a doctor and says that my alcohol intake is excessive'.

I've always assumed the (agony aunt) letters in any papers are made up - just imo.

I think some dirty old men use them as spank material tbh (the sex issue ones obvo)

You wired or something ?

Strip that's the answer and it does not cost the Earth, I'm Neutral and a bit of a livewire so I can tell you this without you being offended I hope. Just keep plugging away and drink plenty of juice and shock her with some gyrating movements or stay static your choice.

ROFL - you need a lie down after that I bet.

I used to own a bar/cafe with a friend of mine. The stuff we used to make up to get in the local paper was silly. They'd lap it up every time though.

When it first opened, my friend got his mum to cut a ribbon to "officially" open the bar and I took some photos. The next day, we called the local paper and told them that Lady ...... of Made Up Town had been present to open the bar and would they like some photos to do a short story?

The very next week, there's half a page story with Jon's mum cutting a ribbon and a few hundred words of free advertising for us.

Another "scam" we pulled off was convincing the local paper that a French aartist was displaying his work at the cafe. We got one of our mates to pose next to a canvas in the bar then we knocked up some rubbish "modern art" in about 30 minutes. Told the local paper, guess what? A big article and photos the next week with the "story" and another ton of free advertising for us.

Lesson learnt - journalists are lazy
