Did They Really Mean To Say That? Newspaper Headlines Nightmares!

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

I did a long series a little while ago called “CLASSIFIED: For Your Eyes Only” showing a feast of classified ads both business and personal that didn’t quite turn out as intended – with very amusing results most of the time.

Well, it turns out that the editors and headline writers of newspapers don’t do that much better a job when you see some of their efforts in print.

Try this selection, for example.

Enjoy.

  1. I”m fascinated by the guy who got the 800-pound ball dropped on him – and he LIVED? I would think that would have caused a spontaneous fusing of his hair with his beard! 😀
