British Bars Selling Sex Toys in Machines:
I love newspaper headlines that would be difficult for a computer to parse and comprehend. I failed to parse this one myself, because context is everything in this case! It's a news story about how sex toy vending machines in Britain were originally installed in restaurant bathrooms (for privacy), but a bar put one right out in the open and it's selling just fine, thank you. (The vending machines also have begun to show up in hairdressing salons, health clubs and retail stores; makes Britain sound a little too much like Japan, to me.) I'm not sure you'll be able to see the story at Newsvine, but here's a link to it.
