It's not quite as good as the New York Post's legendary "Headless Body Found In Topless Bar", but it works.Posted by: William Hughes on June 5, 2003 9:06 PM
Indeed, that remains the best headline ever. First runnerup was from the San Antonio Express News in the fall of 1984, right after the Republican convention in Dallas: "Hospitality Orgy Leaves Dallas Limp". Someone get me a cigarette...Posted by: Charles Kuffner on June 5, 2003 9:35 PM
funny, i was just thinking over on my blog about the time when my dad used to be subeditor - anyway one of his favourites was when some diplomat was arrested and the headline was 'Man held in attache case'.
'Man held in attache case' - heh. Hope they cut some air holes for him. :-)Posted by: Charles Kuffner on June 6, 2003 6:40 AM
"Hospitality Orgy Leaves Dallas Limp" was definitely written before Viagra came out. :)
Here's another sign of quality journalism from the New York Post: Anytime you see the word "FIEND" in the headline, you know it's top-notch writing.Posted by: William Hughes on June 6, 2003 7:55 AM
