The ‘Missing Words’ round

Before checking out the news of the day, I still like to scan through the MailOnline in a morning as, apart from the often totally misleading headlines, non-stories, obsession with certain Z-listers and sensationalism, there is usually an episode or two in the games ‘guess the missing words’ or ‘rearrange the following to form a coherent sentence’.

According to the MailOnline: “Revealed: ‘Lost’ pyramid city uncovered in the heart of Mexico using lasers had as many buildings as Manhattan 1,000 years ago”. Fascinating revelation….ignoring the fact that Manhattan didn’t actually exist 1,000 years ago of course.
