Really useful advice for people who wrap their mobiles up in old horse blankets and are surprised when they can’t hear it ring


”My screen got scratched.” The Other Newspaper meets Anna Arild as she was attempting, somewhat haphazardly, to lean her bicycle against a newspaper stand. First the bicycle fell over, then Anna, and then the news stand. “No… anyway,” she continued, oblivious to the chaos; “My screen got scratched. Then I thought; actually it gives it a bit of personality. But my girlfriend didn’t get it, so I rolled it up in an old horse blanket…you know, to give it a bit of personality. I think the penny dropped then.” Suddenly, Anna’s eye is caught by a small article in a free newspaper on the table in the café where we’re sitting. “Then I thought; what if I can’t hear it ring? So I whipped off the blanket again and of course there was a missed call!”

(The articles at The Other Newspaper are fictitious. The purpose of The Other Newspaper is to give the public a new, disturbing and humorous reflection of the way we consume news on traditional media and posts on the social media that make the recipient question whether the world needs to change and whether one can live online.)
