Metro today has an interview with and picture of Major James Buffy-Maun, the London media set are going fictional character crazy at the moment. It would be wrong to suggest all the letters in Metro are made up, I believe the majority of people really are dumb enough to write to a newspaper seeking an answer to something they could find, mostly they just want the attention I suppose, or think they're being clever with their "Could Doctor Who beat Spiderman in a fight?" bollocks. I've had several letters published there, under different pseudonyms, mostly I wrote in using the name of an old letting agent who pissed me off1.
Hmm, I wanted to say "nom de plumes" up there, but not sure how to spell it, or pluralise it.
