Forget the war in Libya. Who cares about thousands dead in Syria?
Ha! Were you really interested in Ed Miliband getting one over David Cameron at Prime Minister's Questions today? (No, me neither)
The best story of today came from the Press Association wire who, it seemed, had exclusive access to the wedding of Nicholas Batchelor and Kate Champion, who were married at St. Mary's Church in Wootton-Under-Edge in Gloucestershire today.
To be honest, I don't know how the papers missed it. Believe it or not, according to PA, this happened:
'Minutes after the happy couple emerged from the church, high winds plucked the veil from the bride's head.
'Performing a dance in the air, the veil floated up and down the side of the church and it seemed would be gone for good.
'But as the wind took a sudden change of direction the veil plummeted back towards the ground and landed straight into Mr Batchelor's hands, to a round of applause by guests.'
Phew. What a relief. Just imagine what might have happened had Mr Batchelor's hands been elsewhere. A wedding veil might still be drifting somewhere in the ether.
Thankfully, the groom's father was on hand to put things into focus.
Barry Batchelor, former photographer for a certain Press Association (could there possibly be a relation?), revealed: 'There were lots of oohs and ahhs and [even] gasps, and one of Nicholas's friends had run across to try and grab it, but then by magic it landed back in Nicholas's arms.'
Just in case anyone wasn't fully amazed by this stunning story, he added: 'There were big cheers and it became the talking point of the day.'
Yep. It seems the blow-away veil was the hot topic. Who says romance is dead?
Anyway, one wishes the couple a very happy future together.
What do the Eurosceptics actually want?
