Gaddafi killed in Tripoli (2011)
and The man responsible for the shutdown (2013)

I'm just waiting for the crocodile ate by snake to make its third appearance.

Surely it should reflect most recent news, not RickRolled stuff?

Yes. I noticed Pope Wotsit's resignation had appeared recently and wondered why it was so popular again.

They didn't mark this 2007 story as more than a month old.
It's number 3 as of 15.00 10 July 2014.

I have a stack of old newspapers I could flog them. "HMS Warspite goes to breaker's yard" (1947).  "Entebbe hostages freed" (1976). "Goodbye ration books" (1954). That was popular.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

It was in a Zizzi.  Considering their tired menu I'm impressed by the dedication of this gastronomic rebel.  He did eat it right?
