Sun on Sunday ‘huge success’ says Sun on Monday

Unconvincing sounding quotes attributed to builders, such as ‘The Sun on Sunday is the best thing that has happened in the world ever’ and ‘I was even more excited by the birth of this Sun than the birth of my own son’ featured alongside claims that several newsagents had reported selling out of the new paper, presumably after a senior manager from the Sun had bought every copy.
A spokesman for the paper said ‘We knew all along that we were going to claim the first edition was a massive success and make out that it was somehow historically significant, but even we couldn’t have dreamed just how successful we would claim it has been.’Click to send this story to a friend
