    Crazy Headlines

    Here you can leave a crazy headline and it's link.

    First one:

    Leahy wants FBI to help corrupt Iraqi police force

    Er, shouldn't that be "de-corrupt" the Iraqi police force?

    I'm dissapionted no one else has posted anything. Well, I found this site that has some good headlines, but there's no sources or articles to back them up so cannot be sure of thier authenticity. Funny Headlines.

    Thought this one in particular was good, considering this is BAUT:
    Is there a ring of debris around Uranus?
    yes, you heard me, another "Uranus" joke.

    Ah, what the hey, I'll add some more for those of you who are like me and don't like to go to the links:
    Sometimes newspaper editors state the obvious

    * If strike isn't settled quickly it may last a while
    * War dims hope for peace
    * Smokers are productive, but death cuts efficiency
    * Cold wave linked to temperatures
    * Child's death ruins couple's holiday
    * Blind woman gets new kidney from dad she hasn't seen in years
    * Man is fatally slain
    * Something went wrong in jet crash, experts say
    * Death causes loneliness, feeling of isolation

    My favourite one, and only a Brit with knowledge of a certain tabloid will get this, came from the Church of England Newspaper. It was during the reign of the last Archbishop of Canterbury, George Cary.

    It was actually a headline on the front page advertising an article in the paper.

    It was

    Mrs Carey "I'm where God wants me to be"
    Page 3

    It was the juxterposition of the "page 3" subheading

    In a certain tabloid they put pictures of topless women on page 3

    It was a combination of headlines that slipped passed the sub-editors

    Thanks.

    I think that's the first joke 'explained' that I still had a good laugh over

    I agree. I didn't get it on my own but once it was explained I got a good chuckle.

    Then another one when I read it again...
