Daily Mail In Pinterest Pinter Mix Up

By Sam Gibbs on at

We’ve heard a lot about Pinterest recently; it’s certainly a hot topic around the internets at the moment. Now the Daily Mail’s gotten involved, but has seemingly grabbed the wrong end of the stick, phoning the late Harold Pinter’s widow for a statement on the interesting website supposedly named after him.

Sarcasm it may be, but you never can tell when it’s the Daily Mail. Let’s hope for its sake someone’s having a laugh and doesn’t really think the site, which lets you pin interesting things, was named after a Nobel Prize-winning English playwright, actor and director, as deserving as he is for having something named after him.
