Day Today-esque headlines in real news stories
« on: February 03, 2011, 08:08:53 PM »
Just spotted the headline 'GOOGLE EYES APPLE IN TABLET WAR' on the BBC's website.  Imagine waking up from a 30 year coma and seeing that in the morning paper.  Anyone else seen any headlines that could lunge happily out of CM's newsmouth?

The Mail's "Parkinson's medication turned me into gambling gay sex thief, says 51-year-old married father" from yesterday was impressive.

A couple from Norfolk newspapers this week:

"Stiletto Attack in Nightclub"
"Woman hurt by exploding Washing Machine"

Dunno, they sound a bit mundane to me. "Woman hurt by exploding washing" might be more impressive.

Or: "washing machine hurt by exploding woman"

It's already been in the tags but what the hell, it's a tradition!



I still have warm memories of that spate of dog electrocutions in 2007

Alas I cropped the headline, but the story's a good one.

This really doesn't belong here, but I can't find our last 'weird news' thread. http://www.kcra.com/r/26722035/detail.html

This is as good a place as any to write this - On last night's News Night they included a clip of The Day Today in the opening few minutes.  It was the patriotic bit they show in emergencies after John Major and the Queen have a fight, including a policeman smoking a spliff etc.
Just thought it was a bit odd, as so much of Morris’s character is based on Paxman in the first place, didn’t quite fit either.

Saw this a couple of days back and it made me chuckle.  I think it's the "NOT" that does it.

TV presenter Bob Wilson's son-in-law was killed by corned beef sandwich NOT sea urchin

It might be slightly insensitive to post that but the BBC seem to want to wring out the weirdness for all it's worth, because it's The Sun, apparently.

Boy killed in giant snowman horror.
Still my favourite headline. It's the extra 'horror' for no reason that makes it.
