  1. The picture of the three ladies is funny, but the headline is depressing. Superstitious people commit murder, and it’s witchcraft that’s a threat?


  2. The one with the “Man Jumps from Ferry” headline next to the photo on the waterfront of a toddler waving bye-bye was an interesting juxtaposition.

    [I liked that one. It was restrained -W]


  3. I don’t understand why Comic Sans is disliked more than, say, athletic jackets. On the blustery day my father was buried the officiant wore a bright yellow athletic jacket to the grave site. Few things say, “Disengaged” more than a priest in casual wear at a grave site.


  4. The local papers usually don’t have problems with poorly (or amusingly, depending on your take) located photos, but their headlines can be brutal. Two examples, from my town’s paper, not ten months apart in time

    Teen on Tracks Killed by Train Wearing Headphones
    Man Killed by House on Snowmobile

    Occasionally I get the feeling the writer of the headline actually knew what he/she was doing, as with these:

    Tornado Knocks Waffle House Flat as Pancake
    Woman Participating in Sex Game Accidentally Shot In Face
