Queen's oldest corgi dies

The Daily Telegraph is becoming increasingly dumbed down and sometimes illiterate. It talks without shame of "MPs fiddling expenses". It is trendy rather than socially conservative and  regularly publishes things in favour of abortion, homosexual marriage and feminism. It even has a section of its site called Celebrity news. But it is a real pleasure to see this headline in today's paper, which might be the dullest headline I ever saw (good newspapers are supposed to be boring, and especially conservative, monarchist ones):

Queen's oldest corgi dies

Even the Telegraph of Lord Hartwell did not produce a duller headline. It is so very boring that it is almost interesting for that reason.
