Headline of the month: another pair

YESTERDAY was expected to be the busiest day of the year for sales on the internet, prompting the headline in the Scottish Sun: ‘.com all ye faithful’.

It was spotted by allmediascotland.com and is a contender for the site’s ‘Headline of the month’ competition – in association with whisky folk, Whyte & Mackay.

Up for grabs each month are bottles of Whyte & Mackay Special whisky – for both the author of the headline and the person who has nominated it, with the monthly winners entered in a ‘Headline of the year’ competition where two bottles, each worth £150, of Whyte & Mackay 30 year-old are the prizes.

Eligible are headlines in Scottish newspapers (national and local), plus Scottish magazines and online.

And there’s another contender, this time nominated by David Oliver:

It concerns a story about a new London tartan, and the possibility of the Mayor, Boris Johnson, being one of the first to wear it (it helps to know that Johnson is a regular on TV’s Have I Got News for You)…. ‘Have we got trews for you? No, Boris, it’s a London kilt’. It appeared in The Scotsman on Saturday.
