Man bites Dog

Saturday, 26 July 2008
Wise man once say: "If a dog bites a man it is sad for man, but not a story. But if a man he bites a dog, then this is news!"

Spotted in Friday's Telegraph.

Was biting the dog really the best way for the boy to defend himself? Why not kick the dog, or punch it, or hit it with a stick? And did the poor boy catch anything nasty? And if biting a dog is so newsworthy, why has it only made nib-form in The Telegraph? Think again, 'wise man'.
