Mad Hatters!

It’s such fun reading the UK papers. They have a much better sense of the absurd than any American paper I’ve read. And the captions on the pictures are spittingly hilarious. Royal Ascot 2012Summer in the UK papers is known as the Silly Season, so when Ascot rolls around this time each year, the editors are in top form. So go check out the Telegraph, the Daily Mail or the Guardian for some great commentary.
