Berlusconi nose broken by protest attacker

Synchronicity: two or more apparently unrelated events occurring together in an apparently meaningful way. For example, earlier this week controversial Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, a short-haired man in a suit, was hit in the face with an object that broke his nose. There's a BBC news story here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/8411198.stm

Bankers 'whacked' in arcade game

Meanwhile, Tim Hunkin, Suffolk's favourite boffin, was in the news because his new arcade game on Southwold Pier allows visitors to use a mallet to hit short-haired men in suits on the head. Apparently, Tim has to keep replacing worn out mallets (perhaps he should consider swapping the mallets for plaster statuettes of Milan Cathedral).
