Man trolls newspaper missed connections brilliantly

“You stole my heart while I was grinding for coins on the street.”

Not lyrics from a new Miley Cyrus tune, but just a smattering of brilliance from newspaper prankster Shocko.

With any luck, the hilarious examples we've provided below should ensure you never take Rush Hour Crush and the like seriously again.

Frankly we’re just relived that nobody would ever want to date the sort of chap who sports a pair of Mrs Brown's Boys' socks.
