Silly season

Posted by Gary on August 15, 2003

In August in the UK lots of us are on holiday and the newspapers don't have so much real news to print. They resort to trawling around for trivia - "June babies have a higher risk of anorexia" and the like. Do other countries call this the 'silly season' or is it just us?

By the way, don't worry if your birthday is in June - that story was sillier than most.
