In my heart, I’m a newspaper guy. And in my heart of hearts I’m a tabloid newspaper guy.
My second favorite changes from year to year, as tabloid editors crank out the headline gold.
For example, my fav in 2001 was when the US started bombing Afghanistan… there was a great photo on the front of the New York Post with a bunch of Afghanis standing around a creater. Over that photo was the blazing headline, KABULSEYE!
In 2003, it had to be the Post’s headline describing France and Germany not wanting to join the US invasion of Iraq. That headline? AXIS OF WEASEL.
Until now, it was the Post Spitzer sex-scandal headline, HO NO!
It’s all been eclipsed, though, with this headline from the British tabloid The Sun: OUCH! MAN LOBS HIS WILLY OFF.
Hats off to you, Sun. Hats off to you.
