Headline to Headline

Drawn from a thread over at Balloon Juice, here are the finalists for the best headlines of 2007. (Yes, I know we have more than half a year left -- assuming the president doesn't unveil that Rapture Accomplished banner -- but these are going to be impossible to top.)

The first headline displays tongue-in-cheek humor. The second one, well, you don't want to put your tongue there.

Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments below.

I'm kinda proud of the elegance of this hed I wrote the other day, if I do say so myself.

That second one CANNOT be real.

I hope the headline writer knew what he was doing, at least.

Nice, Travis.

But let's back up -- you write news for a local NBC affiliate? Can you get me the autographs of the Japanese dude from "Heroes"?

TravisG said...

I'm afraid I can't do that, Otto, but I can get you a foot-tall cutout of Matt Lauer.

Otto Man said...

Thanks, but I already have three.
