Anyone got any funny newspaper headlines either done on purpose or accidentally that they remember?

The Mirror newspaper in the UK printed a picture of Pedro Diniz in his F1 Benetton when it caught fire during re-fuelling, with the headline "Diniz in the Oven".

I think the Sun newspaper also printed the picture with a headline that twisted the then Benetton TV ads (the united colours of Benetton) and changed it to "The Ignited Colours of Benetton"

Others I've seen on the web, but can't say for sure if they are true or not include:

After a man escaped from a mental asylum, raping the washing lady as he fled, the news papers headline read: NUT SCREWS WASHER AND BOLTS

ROFL.......'Nut screw washer and bolts' - brilliant!!

I heard a similar one a few years ago (probably an urban myth, but funny nonetheless)

It was a guy with mental health problems who had been locked up in a secure mental hospital. He was apparently convinced he could communicate with 'the dead'. The other thing about him was that he was a midget..... He escaped and the headline read:


Small Medium at Large.....
