Wacky Headlines

Thanks to one of my email buddies for this one!

This one came from the Tribune. The Editorial Room was

called and asked who wrote this. It took two or three

readings before the editor realized that what he was

reading was impossible! They put in a correction the

next day.

The obesity one gets my vote. And the snappy remark.

I think they all reflect where we are in so-called journalism... sensationalism before facts. I no longer read the papers.

ROFL! Sometimes, things like these just slip by - but, when I worked at the paper at my university, sometimes we would come up with preposterous headlines. And, every now and then, they would be "overlooked" and go to print! LOL.

It makes one wonder where the so called "editors" were....Funny!

Sky said...

also, thanks for your kind comment recently.

Arkansas Patti said...

Loved the headlines but enjoyed the comments more. The Panda mating got my vote.

Star said...

The headlines are too funny. Sadly though, you would think news publications would have higher editorial standards.

Joy Des Jardins said...

Your comments were as funny as the headlines Judy...thanks.

kenju said...

Joy: they aren't my comments; they came with the email.

Inanna said...

Tastes like chicken... hahahahaha!

Darlene said...

I got that one too and laughed a second time. Thanks for the chuckle.

I love, love these!

Those are great. Those are sort of like the studies that spend thousands to come up with conclusions such as "it has been shown that eating too much causes one to gain weight."
