Wenn might want to Take That back

By Axegrinder axeblog

Wenn (“the unique, independent, global news network”) claims to supply “entertainment news you can trust” on its site.

Flick to “Wenn research” and the company offers to provide facts for your projects. Let’s hope they are more accurate than the ones featured online:

Here’s how it works… You call us in a panic, because you are unable to find out exactly when Tom Hanks was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We find out instantly, and tell you that it was 30 June 1992.

Or you desperately need to know exactly where and when Take That played their last ever concert. Within moments, we’ve told you it was in the Netherlands on 4 April 1996 (a Thursday).

Does no one at Wenn know that Take That are back (for good)?
