Proof read your fucking paper!

Daily Mail headline:

"The amazing little and large identical twins."

First line of the article:

"Here is one pair of twin brothers that few will have any difficulty telling apart."

Right. So the kids are identical, but can easily be identified from each other. Are the standards of this crap rag so low that they are happy to contradict the headline in the first line of the article? Did no-one notice that the headline doesn't make sense? Does no-one double check this crap before it goes to press?

UPDATE:

Check the comments section for an interesting observation from DK about what makes an identical twin. Turns out The Daily Hate may have be technically right in their use of terminology. Ah well, you can't be right all the time, just as they cannot be wrong all the time.

Erm, but "identical twins" is a technical term; whether twins are identical or non-identical depends on the manner in which they are formed.

Well, you learn something new everyday. However I maintain the article - and the paper in general - is poorly written, poorly edited shite. When I have a spare five minutes, I will have a look for some other articles to prove it.
