???????? ????? ????????I love the Daily Mail. Well, not love. I mean I like it. Well not like it. I’m ambivalent to the Daily Mail, well not ambivalent as such. I despise the Daily Mail.
However sometimes they are so wrong that they’re funny. Like Hitler, or Lithuania’s entry into the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest.
“Al-Qaeda’s terrifying vision of a devastated America in the wake of a nuclear attack” warns the Daily Mail article, written by the faintly amusingly named Barry Wigmore. In the article the Wigmeister, as his friends surely call him, writes about a picture of an apocalyptic Washington, the White House burned and destroyed in a nuclear attack. Apparently created by terrorists in order to recruit more into their ranks, the picture stands as a timely reminder of the world we live in today and the evils that Al Qaeda want to unleash.
Except that the picture is concept art from Fallout 3. The game, set in 2277, takes place in post-apocalyptic United States and comes out next year on both Xbox 360 and PS3.
