Hurricane Bawbag

[Picture of a pile of Metro newspapers "Hurricane Bawbag"]SCOTLAND BRACED ITSELF FOR HIGH WINDS IN A MET OFFICE RED ALERT.

People stayed at home.  Initially there were fears and concerns, but as the winds did not develop as thought, soon derision set in. Through social media, such as Twitter and Facebook, the event was sarcastically named “Hurricane Bawbag”, this trended with various hashtag spellings, however, it was generally considered an in-joke for the social media user, or at least simply owned by the real people out there and not the “establishment”.

Imagine the shock to the system to see the headline on the newspaper the following day. Yes, things are getting worse when newspapers resort to using such language on their front covers.
