Actual Headlines (we need a laugh, guys)




Proofreading is a dying art, wouldn't you say?

Man Kills Self Before Shooting Wife and Daughter
This one I caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this. It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!! They put in a correction the next day.
I just couldn't help but sending this along. Too funny.

I just thought we REALLY al need to laugh.

We all have seen stupid articles in newspapers, idiotic reasoning, etc.

But when you are staring at someone's lack of proofing (or perhaps its not reading outload), it really made me LOL.

THere has been so much meanness. This generates that good feeling belly laugh. Please publish.
