I read on the interweb that the Titanic hit an iceberg 99 years ago ergo next year is the centenary.
I thought maybe the BBC had run out of things to talk about so they ran this story a year early.
Also, by this time next year everyone will be going mental about the Olympics so the Titanic story might pass like a ship in the night.
Anyway that was just the tip of the erm…story.
The photo they used to thrust forward the non-story was of the crew members presumably just before they boarded.
Now forgive me for being insensitive but some of them had funny faces.
It tickled me so much that I pressed the print screen button on my netbook and whacked the resulting image into paint where I used my extremely rudimentary editing skills to create hilarious captions.
It did get me thinking, is it too soon to joke about it? 99 years is a long time but people died and that sort of thing never goes away.
It was funny to me though, so that superseded any guilt I was feeling.
Worryingly easily actually.

Disclaimer: The eyes are shifty and he looks like he has a tan. Not the standard look for cabin crew aboard a gigantic vessel. More a man with mafia connections.
