08/22/13 Grif.Net – More Strange Headlines

A friend (who also shares the great name of Bob) said “Proofreading is a
dying art, wouldn’t you say? I read – ‘Man Kills Self Before Shooting Wife
and Daughter’ in the 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 published a
correction the next day.”

So here are some “classic” headlines from the Grif.Net files that will make
you scratch your head and wonder if ANYONE is literate at our newspapers:
