Just noticed another one today that might be a classic. Had to make a thread; maybe we can collect these as w run across them.
Please use this to post funny headlines you’ve actually seen – preferably current ones. I’d prefer not to have this particular thread filled up with ones you’ve made up, or half-remembered gags from a TV show, The Onion, or something you got from somebody’s e-mail list. Although those can be funny too, of course.
Add the subhead if you feel like it.
Here’s the one that inspired this thread:
