Nicole Austin – Scandalous

{September 3, 2008}   Thursday Thirteen # 67

Thirteen Ridiculous Headlines (plus a few extra)

Here are thirteen shining examples of why editors are so very important! These are supposedly from actual headlines in our nation’s newspapers. Scary!

*Note: My thanks to Annmarie McKenna for emailing these

1. Red Tape Holds Up New Bridges (You mean there’s something stronger than duct tape?)

2. Something Went Wrong in Jet Crash, Expert Says (No, really?)

3. Police Begin Campaign to Run Down Jaywalkers (Now that’s taking things a bit far!)

4. Panda Mating Fails; Veterinarian Takes Over (What a guy!)

5. Miners Refuse to Work After Death (Those good-for-nothing lazy so-and-sos!)

6. Juvenile Court to Try Shooting Defendant (See if that works any better than a fair trial!)

7. War Dims Hope for Peace (I can see where it might have that effect!)

8. If Strike Isn’t Settled Quickly, It May Last Awhile (Ya think?)

9. Cold Wave Linked to Temperatures (Who would have thought!)

10. Enfield Couple Slain; Police Suspect Homicide (They may be on to something.)

11. Man Struck By Lightening; Faces Battery Charge (He probably IS the battery charge!)

12. New Study of Obesity Looks for Larger Test Group (Weren’t they fat enough?)

13. Astronaut Takes Blame for Gas in Spacecraft (That’s what he gets for eating those beans.)

*Bonus: Because I just couldn’t leave any of them out

Kids Make Nutritious Snacks (Do they taste like chicken?)

Local High School Dropouts Cut in Half (Chain-saw Massacre all over again)

Hospitals Are Sued by 7 Foot Doctors (Boy, are they tall!)

Typhoon Rips Through Cemetery; Hundreds Dead (Did I read that right?)
