TPA Editorial Team Riff on Page 3 Colour Yarn

Today the Geelong Advertiser printed a lovely little yarn about a bride-to-be who is set to play in a D Grade netball grand final less than three hours before she ties the knot.

This story, on Page 3 no less, drew the attention of The Public Apology’s Dave J. Edwards and Ben Shine. While the original headline (see below) wasn’t bad, Shine and Edwards came up with a few alternatives of their own. Read on for more.
