Having read it back again I prefer the first version. Still think it could work in advert format but that would need a bit of work and definitely still needs the 'weird old tip' reference in there.
‘Weird old weight loss trick’ was heroin addiction

Righto - who's going to bump this tomorrow morning?
Doesn't look like anybody is going to bump it dvo.
Somebody bumped it onto the front page, wrongly I think.
Last thing I would want to do is bump this to the top. Is there a a dump button anywhere? Sorry but I just don't think it is funny. Maybe it is just me but I don't get it. Somebody point out the funny bits please.
Why are you sorry? You don’t need to apologise for not finding it funny. I thought the idea of the “weird old weight loss tip” being something that would make you lose weight while being about the least sensible way of doing it, short of chopping your legs off, was funny. If you disagree then it would probably be a waste of time to point out the specific bits that I thought were funny.
Everybody has different tastes. For example, I thought the idea of a North Korean/Iranian consortium being awarded the UK nuclear contract was a great idea, but not many people seemed to agree with me.
I think if you hadn't seen all the "One weird tip" ads, it wouldn't be as good.
Luckily, everyone except weematt has seen them - maybe his internet's broken.
Fine story and a very good front page.
‘It turns out that ‘Paul from Glasgow’ does exist and really did lose the weight, but when we found him in a bedsit he was sitting in his own filth, injecting heroin between his toes and hadn’t eaten for three days.’
If that's not funny, you're in the wrong place.
@fik: Thanks for the explanation - I hadn't seen the ads (I was lucky) and I thought the story was ... slightly funny.
If you run adblock you're missing out on lots of things, but especially Rebecca.
