Person living through 2020 begs journalists not to use word ‘landslide’ in headline

People across the world have expressed surprise and relief today, after seeing the word ‘landslide’ in a headline in the year 2020 only to realise it’s not another natural disaster. “Jesus Christ guy, any other word would do,” said one local woman reading a story about Biden’s runaway victory. “You might as well call it a nuclear war of votes if you’re going down that path.”

Journalists have since apologised to readers, with the Associated Press now workshopping alternative terms for Biden’s win. “So far we’ve got ‘tsunami at the polls‘, a ‘locust swarm of ballots‘ or ‘a civil war of voters‘. Wait no sorry that last one’s for the post-election outcome. Never mind that.”
