How Weird News Get Made | Ghantagiri.com
“Talk about a potty mouth,” jokes the New York Post. Jade Sylvester can’t stop eating toilet paper, and this is her story.

The Post‘s version of her story was syndicated from News.com.au
  • The News.com.au story links back to the Huffington Post
The Huffington Post story links back to three stories, all published on the same day:
  • One from Mirror.co.uk
  • One from the Metro.co.uk
  • One from LincolnshireEcho.co.uk

At the bottom of the Echo‘s story is a credit: “National press agency Sell My Story.” It links to the original version of the story:

This version ends with a note:

You might not have ever thought your crazy craving could lead to earning money from a national magazine or newspaper story, but you too could get paid for sharing your experiences.

The Facebook page affiliated with SellMyStory, which functions as a press agency by supplying stories to British publications, posts calls on a regular basis.

“Sell My Story is the country’s leading agency for selling your real life story to a magazine or newspaper,” the page says. “We’re experts in getting you the best deal.”

Britain’s Hottest New Bar Is Inside a Public Bathroom

Britain’s Hottest New Bar Is Inside a Public Bathroom | ghantagiri.com
A brilliant entrepreneur will debut a high-end, magical-sounding cocktail bar that just so happens to be located inside an old underground public restroom in trendy North West London. It's called Ladies and Gentlemen, of course, and while the grand reveal hasn't gone down just yet, the space is apparently a beauty to look at, with lovely, pre-WWII marble mosaic flooring and arched beams throughout. Also, there's a wall of functioning urinals.

Proprietor Will Borrell, who owns a Polish vodka company, also included room for a grand piano and a small kitchen that will serve his mom's sausage rolls and Scotch eggs. The toilets and urinals have been lovingly refurbished, and somewhere among all these things there will also be an old-school copper alembic that turns out liquor made with "locally grown botanicals."
