Daily Mail Story Generator

I was at the Climate Camp, reading the Evening Standard's account of how militants intended to hijack the camp to eat babies or something when it occurred to me that Daily Mail, Express and Standard journos could be replaced by a relatively trivial perl script.

So, may I present the Daily Mail Story Generator. I’ve now also posted the perl code which makes the stories.
