Headlines are not only informative; they can be weird as well

And now for something on the lighter side.

People collect all sorts of things. Some collect coins, other collect stamps. As a former copy editor and headline writer, I collect headlines. Not just any headlines, mainly Internet and newspaper headlines that are funny, punny or just plain weird.

Here are some from my collection. Enjoy.

Nah. Too easy.

I am a retired journalist with nearly 30 years in the field, during which time I was a reporter and held numerous editor positions at local newspapers and a number of magazines. After I retired, I was a sub in my local school district, then did PR for that district. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in journalism, and as for my politics, that's simple: I'm a liberal Democrat. I'm married, and my wife recently retired after 25 years as a teacher. We have one daughter, who has earned her PhD and works at a UC. Through this blog, I hope to pass on some interesting thoughts and ideas, entertain with some lighthearted posts and generally quell my pandemic-induced boredom.
