I saw "MY RAPE TERROR AT HANDS OF PIRATES" on the front of the Daily Mail last year.  Dunno if it's exactly the Day Today standards, but it certainly made me chuckle.

I can actually still remember Mark Lawrenson cutting over Ray Stubbs who had the unenviable job of saying his name, with "What did you say his name way Ray, FUCKS?!"

As the two ladies spotted the cross dresser he ran away. Later one of the dogs chased after the man; by the time the women had caught up, the man was having sex with the pet.

You have to admire how quickly he talked the dog into it. He must be a right charmer!

I like how the guy's train of thought must have gone:

"Oh shit! I've been caught outside dressed as a woman, how embarassing! Better run off, the shame, the shame..."

...

"Phwor, that dog's a bit of alright"

Baffling.

Another one from BBC online: Sexy Monkys Wash With Own Urine.  At what point did the pronouncement of inter-species 'sexiness' fall under the category of objective reportage.  Did I miss a meeting?

Not so much a headline, but there's an apparently real academic study into student drinking called

Live sex class troubles university president

Quote
CHICAGO — The head of a U.S. university said Thursday he was launching an investigation into an on-campus presentation of a live sex act performed for students at an after-class event.

Morton Schapiro, president of Northwestern University, a private school in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, said he was “troubled and disappointed” after hearing about the use of a motorized sex toy on a naked woman by her fiancé in front of more than 100 students.

Jim Marcus and Faith Kroll were part of a group of four adults brought to speak about the world of kink and fetish in an optional seminar that followed psychology professor J. Michael Bailey’s popular class on human sexuality, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The live sex act featured a sex toy with a power-saw handle and an attachment representing erect male genitalia in place of the saw blade.

Meanwhile, Daily Northwestern reports:

Quote
Bailey has publicly defended the demonstration as educational about sexual diversity, which is a common theme in his classes. He said he has received no complaints about the incident...

...The optional presentation last Monday, attended by about 120 students, featured a naked non-student woman being repeatedly sexually stimulated to the point of orgasm by the sex toy, essentially a motorized phallus.

I actually heard this ad on the radio recently and it made me think of something which would appear in a US-themed segment on TDT or Brass Eye

Er... it just looks like a house to me. Only a Channel Fünf exec could possibly make that mistake.
