Breaking news from MailOnline

According to the MailOnline, a 10-year-old boy standing on a wall might 'dwarf' his dad, who isn't standing on that wall:

Surprisingly, when the boy is not standing on that wall, he's shorter than his dad.


  1. God lord, this is Earth Shattering! We must inform the govern... oh wait, never mind, it's fairly inane.

    Also, nice to see I wasn't the only one to think of the "Breaking News:" gag when I first saw this.

  2. Can this be the same Daily Mail that promised on its front page on 8th September 1997 that it would "not in future purchase pictures taken by paparazzi"? Surely not

  3. What happened to the PCC editors code that says they are not allowed to publish photos of children without parental consent?

  4. I completely agree with the Daily Mail on this one - someone standing on a wall CAN be taller than someone who isn't standing on the wall.

  5. I've checked with a ruler, and yep - he definitely has a 'brief height advantage'. Well done the Mail!
