Journalism Gems

~via Orthometer, Top Ten Headlines of 2007, a sampler:
--Miners Refuse to Work after Death. (No-good-for-nothing' lazy so-and-sos!)

--Juvenile Court to Try Shooting Defendant. (See if that works any better than a fair trial!)

--War Dims Hope for Peace. (I can see where it might have that effect!)

--If Strike Isn't Settled Quickly, It May Last Awhile. (Ya think?!)

--Cold Wave Linked to Temperatures. (Who would have thought!)

--Enfield ( London ) Couple Slain; Police Suspect Homicide. (They may be on to something!)

--Red Tape Holds Up New Bridges. (You mean there's something stronger than duct tape?!)

--Man Struck By Lightning: Faces Battery Charge. (He probably IS the battery charge.)

--New Study of Obesity Looks for Larger Test Group. (Weren't they fat enough?!)

How's this one from my home town newspaper (An old one I found in the attic)

"Sparkling Hooker Wins VD Crown."

Sparkling Hooker was a horse and VD is short for Vernon Downs, a race track.
