Could a cloud photographed over Sardinia that looks like a rough approximation of the UK without Scotland on top be an omen as to how the Scottish referendum will turn out? Or what about a piece of fried chicken?
Of course not, but these "omens" have proved irresistible photo stories for UK tabloids in the run up to the referendum. The Daily Mail seems to have been particularly enjoying them.
The Sun even put the cloud picture on the front page of its Scottish edition:
Both stories were provided by South West News Service (SWNS), though Terry O'Neil, the Isle of Wight man who reportedly found the piece of post-independence fried chicken, had tried to get some media interest himself (including tweeting his photo to the Mail last week) before SWNS stepped in to publicise his KFC discovery.
