Hyper-bollocks…

Hyperbole can be fun and in many instances, warranted. I’m certainly as guilty of it as the next guy, but sometimes it needs to be called out just the same… like the person who decided that this collection of inflammatory words was a good idea – scaremongering at its absolute finest:

A triple-vortex polar blast is threatening to thrust the UK into a snowy January as a plume of sub-zero air across Britain will lock the nation into Arctic misery until spring, forecasters have warned.

It’s the first paragraph from an article in the Daily Express last week, where language and journalistic integrity are seemingly secondary to sensationalism. It sounds like the blurb from a Hollywood summer blockbuster.

So basically, folks, we’re gonna get some snow.
