Stupid Headlines

Postby Exp. Date, the rat » Wed Jul 15, 2009 8:52 am

Just saw this headline on CNN:

Man killed when car plunges into Grand Canyon

Well, duh! Of course he died!

It would be a good title if he lived! But ANYONE would die who PLUNDGED over the edge of the Grand Canyon! Plunged-ing harldy ever ends well!

So anyone else have a stupid headline they would like to share?
A legal Feegle? How could there be such a thing?
Today I feel like I am soaring like a tortoise!

WOMAN DIES AFTER ASSASSINATION

She died after she got assassinated. Very logical.

There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

Oh no. No wonder you stopped reading newspapers :roll:

Sometimes I see puns so bad I think "how long were they waiting to use that one?"
