A few more headlines, laughs
OK, if you are anything like me, you'll embrace any excuse to laugh right about now.
As I mentioned a few months ago in this space, people in my business sometimes take themselves far too seriously. We need to laugh at ourselves a little more often. I'd wager that most newspapers have, at some point, made a humorous mistake - either with a headline or story.
So, back by popular demand (and since Jay Leno is no longer sharing his late-night headlines), I give you my version. By the way, feel free to send me any good ones you happen to stumble across.
Here are some of the best headline goof-ups from America's well-intentioned editors. Enjoy:
• Alton attorney accidentally sues himself.
• Scientists to kill ducks to see why they are dying.
• Hospitals resort to hiring doctors.
• Students cook and serve grandparents.
• Chick accuses some of her male colleagues of sexism (the councilwoman's name is Chick).
• Nudists fight erection of towers near Wreck Beach.
• City unsure why the sewer smells.
• Parents keep kids home to protest school closure.
• Ex-minister breaks silence, says nothing.
• Overall serious crime rate down - but arsons, burglaries, homicides up.
