There's a funny article in my paper this morning listing newspaper headlines unlikely ever to be seen.
Here are a few for starters:-

Ignorant Person Thinks Twice Before Calling Radio Phone-In

Actress Fails To Cry When Accepting Award

Trump Has A Quiet Day

Child Looks Up From Mobile Phone To Greet Elderly Relative

Any more suggestions?

Some time in the early/mid 1980s Queen Eliz II was traveling in South America and was served up something not on her approved list. One of the British Tabloids had a front page photo of her wrinkling her nose with a headline, "Queen Eats Rat".

David when you're Wright you're right.

Now for a quick song before a headline like Naked Bezos Pictures appears



Wonderful World - with apologies to Sam Cook, James Taylor, Herb Albert and Art Galfunker.


Don't know nothin bout History
Don' know any biology
I've never read a single book
Don't know nothin bout how to cook

And I care nothin at all bout you
But if Fake News would love me true
What a wonderful world this would be

Don't know nothin bout geography
Don't know any trigonometry
All I know is about writing a tweet
Don't know how to admit defeat

But I know one and one is two
and if fake News would love me true
What a wonderful world this would be

Now I don't claim to be an honest man baby
And I don't try to be
cause honest men are all losers baby
And nobody's more special than me

Don't know how to be president
Don't know what I said or what I meant
Don't know nothin bout buildin a wall
Don't know nothin bout nothin at all

Its only me that I've been thinkin of
But if Fake News would give me love
What a wonderful world this would be

What a wonderful
Justice free world this would be
What a wonderful
Wonderful
Wonderful world

Other type headlines.

I think I recently read that the police had stated that the theft of several hundred sheep was planned. It's difficult to imagine the logistics involved in shifting that many animals would not have a plan.

Also, I think you can still read the sort of guy found with knife in back and police suspecting foul play...

Another drift but an odd one we reported to the police was pigs on the road. Not what you'd want to meet on the A140 but there is a certain awkwardness about reporting it.

Headlines that never made it:

A friend of mine many years ago got a job working for The Wichita Eagle writing headlines. He'd be given raw copy in printed form (before computers) and would type a headline, clip it to the story, and hand it to the editor for approval. The editor would (usually) toss it on a moving belt running into the composing room where it would be set in type.
Sometimes the editor would make corrections or give it back to be "tightened up". My friend Tony got a general request to 'make heads more succinct, but clear & to the point'.
   One day Tony got a brief story about a man who was tried & convicted of "indecent exposure". He pondered... then wrote 2 versions... and handed #1 to the editor, who glanced at it, tossed it on the moving belt.... then made a frantic leap to barely grab it before it disappeared thru the wall.
He looked at Tony with mouth open as Tony said.."Oh, here's your real head.."

The original said "Dangling dong dooms defendant."
