Life recycling art?

FOUR days after Scotland’s new satirical website, The Daily Mash, published a ludicrous tale headlined, ‘Eat Your Own Rubbish’, where it was claimed that Scottish councils were planning to shift from weekly refuse collections to never, a Scots newspaper splashed almost the same tale.

Fortunately, there were some differences.

The Daily Mash said householders would have to consume their own waste, while the newspaper said they would be forced to recycle it.

Life imitates art? Or are the workings of Scottish local authorities just beyond satire?
