Stupid Headlines

I’m always amused by the stupidity of some news stories, and sometimes just the headline makes me snicker.

“Hillary Dines with 8 of her Living Predecessors” – Ummm… yah think? I know it’s hard to believe she didn’t dine with any of the dead ones, but is that really a relevant detail to put in the headline?

“ABC Turns Programming Over to White House” – This one only made me laugh because I thought the White House already directed programming on ABC. Still, this one has a bit of an Orwellian flavor to it.

“Obama Seeks to Give Government New Powers to Seize Key Companies” – Again, this one is funny because I’m pretty sure Obama ran on this platform. Are we honestly surprised?

“Fly Bugs Obama, so he Coolly Smacks It” – Is this actually news? You know your country is going to hell in a handbasket when Obama killing a fly gets front page coverage on CNN.

“A Church on Fire Extinguishes God’s Judgment” – This local gem turns out to be an Arkansas pastor’s sermon notes, but pops up on the local section of CNN.

“Man Surprised by Python on Toilet” – I will leave the jokes to you except to ask…. what was a python doing on the toilet?

“Large Turnout Expected for Deer Hearing” – I’m guessing it will be people meeting about deer, not deer having a meeting, but this headline leaves something to be desired.
