I have read in months:

Whale-hunting in landlocked Utah

A British student has an American dream – and it involves going illegal whale-hunting in landlocked Utah.

This July, Richard Smith, 23, and Luke Bateman, 20, both from Cornwall, are planning to travel 18,000 miles across the land of the free while breaking as many of its ridiculous and arcane local laws as possible.

Smith told the Western Morning News that the pair will risk being arrested for falling asleep in a cheese factory in South Dakota and playing golf in the streets of Albany, New York. In Jonesborough, Georgia, they will attempt to drive local police mad by illegally saying “oh boy”.  Let’s hope Downing Street is braced for the diplomatic storm.

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
