Where Were The Editors?
Stupid newspaper headlines is a subject that has been very popular not only here on HubPages, but on the internet in general, and o n my blogs specifically. I haven't written a hub about this topic in a few weeks and today just seemed like the kind of day to do it again. Laughter is the best medicine and all that. Remember that these are actual newspaper headlines found in papers all over the United States. So, without further ado....
Headline: Grandmother of Eight Makes Hole In One
Me: That sounds about par for the course.
Headline: Deaf Mute Gets New Hearing in Killing
Me: Praise be for medical science!
Headline: Police Begin Campaign to Run Down Jaywalkers
Me: That's one way to skin a cat.
Headline: House Passes Gas Tax On To Senate
Me: What else would expect of all those old farts?
Headline: Two Convicts Evade Noose, Jury Hung
Me: Am I the only one that thinks this should be the other way around?
Headline: William Kelly Was Fed Secretary
Me: And he had a case of indigestion that you wouldn't believe!
And last but not least...
Headline: Safety Experts Say Bus Passengers Should Be Belted
Me: Having ridden a bus from Denver to Maine, I agree wholeheartedly. POW! Right in the kisser!
Now that's pretty funny stuff right there. If you happen to catch a goofy headline in your local bird cage liner, drop me a message here at HubPages and I'll do my best to use it in a future Hub. And better still, you'll get a mention for bringing it to my attention.
Until next time, Adios, y'all.
Thanks to innocentenglish.com for the headlines!
