I've just looked at The Local ...... the story's hidden away, but it's there:

http://www.thelocal.ch/page/view/sea...m+closing+down

This, however, is what looks to be their offering:

http://www.thelocal.ch/20150401/swis...-boost-fitness

..... or possibly, this:

No that is real news.
Given the timing of The Local, first expect the jokes as of Friday.

Actually I think it shows people can be incredibly pretentious about art without having a bloody clue.

They all really liked the Ikea picture.

Surely they should still like it after knowing it was an Ikea print?

Re: Happy April fools day

com.google has everything backwards,

you can also play pac-man on any google map (little pacman icon next to satellite view).
