8 viral news stories from this summer and how we reported them

We like to keep abreast of weird happenings here at The National Student... and luckily the caring, sharing people of the internet make it very easy for us to pick up on the stories that matter. And by matter, we mean provide us with enough inner-office hilarity to breeze the afternoon away happily. Summer 2015 was no different. In September alone we were treated to a female student in the US travelling everywhere via Barbie jeep in a protest over her driving ban, another errant female (again in the US) being pulled over and offering the police a little bit of an unexpected surprise during her pat-down, and, on our own (slightly tamer) shores, a significant number of people misunderstanding the purpose of a Crimewatch reconstruction. If that wasn’t enough, we ended the month with the revelation that our very own Prime Minister (allegedly) once put his unmentionables inside a deceased pig, proving conclusively that everything in British politics is corrupt and that Charlie Brooker is indeed a modern day soothsayer. Allegedly. We love you, internet. Here’s a round-up of the gifts you gave us over the past three months. This man’s very bemused face in this article says it all, really. We don’t have much sympathy though. Fool. Actor who played murder suspect in Crimewatch reconstruction questioned as suspect in same murder
