Pest at The SMH exaggerates serial pest’s death

It's hard to believe that serial pest Peter Hore is dead. All the more difficult because he's not. But that's just what The SMH website was reporting around 3pm yesterday.

It’s hard to believe that serial pest Peter Hore is dead. All the more difficult because he’s not. But that’s just what The SMH website was reporting around 3pm yesterday. While the article in question has now been deleted, the title of its URL – – says it all.  The piece (republished by a blogger – in the online world you can run from history but you can’t hide) reported that Hore had died at Brisbane’s Suncorp stadium during Robbie Williams’ Wednesday night concert. It read:

Hore reportedly scaled a roof beam while evading security and fell 25m, hitting the edge of the stage. He died en route to hospital… Suncorp Stadium officials released a statement this morning saying security staff noticed Hore, dressed in a pink bridal gown, attempting to enter the stage area. They reportedly persued [sic] him when he began to climb a roof beam.
