It has been said that the difference between Brits and Americans is that Americans lack irony. Even if that were true (Groenig and McFarlane would disagree), it looks like someone has turned off the irony switch on this side of the Atlantic too:


1) The Mail on Sunday is giving away a free CD of the Stranglers greatest hits.

2) DFS are using a pastchice of Warhol's video for Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" to sell sofas.
