Funny newspaper phrases

Journalists love nothing more than a good "knobbly monster" - a desperate attempt not to use the same word again . . . when there is only one.

Named after Paul Hudson, who was writing about alligators when, having used up "reptiles", he resorted to "the knobbly monsters".

Here are some classic funny newspaper knobbly monsters ..

Gordon Ramsay: The Michelin-starred stove ace

Darth Vader: The heavy-breathing turncoat Jedi

McDonald's: The haven of burger addicts
