Herald Diary: 2011
By (author) Ken Smith
If every Glaswegian thinks they are a comedian, then the “Herald” newspaper’s daily “Diary” column is their jokebook. When true life cartwheels over into humour, or a joke is cracked in a Scottish office, bar or playground, it usually ends up in the “Diary”. The year 2011 has brought us royal weddings, Scottish elections, tumbling house prices, headline-grabbing football matches, and dire weather. Yet Scots smiled through the lot, and told the “Diary” about it. We have now carefully gone over the hundreds of “Diary” stories from the past 12 months to bring you the very best. In this volume, we gather the very best tales from the column, proving that ordinary Scots are still the natural comedians of the world.
Ken Smith is the award-winning Glasgow journalist on The Diary who gathers the wit of the country together every day for Herald readers. He says it beats working for a living.
