The Slice

Today’s oddball newsroom memory

After enough years go by, those tasked with writing headlines for stories about annual events can get a little punchy.

I think this is especially true of those who have to come up with fresh words to describe cultural events that roll around every year.

So maybe it was understandable when, a number of years ago, a page designer handling a story on a folklife festival came up with “The folk's on you”.

That did not run.
