Over the years and after many mergers the Mainstream Media has become an arm of the corporations that seem to have their fingers into everything. It’s become painfully clear that many media types have become TV stars in their own right. You would think that those under public scrutiny would be more careful than most about the articles and headlines they post or print. I guess that folks who control what we see and read could at times be less than careful. To prove my point read these wonderfully lame and stupid headlines that made their way through writers and editors to amuse and annoy the rest of us.

Include Your Children When Baking Cookies

Drunks Get Nine Months in Violin Case

Something Went Wrong in Jet Crash, Experts Say

Juvenile Court to Try Shooting Defendant

War Dims Hope for Peace

New Study of Obesity Looks for Larger Test Group

Local High School Dropouts Cut in Half

Smokers Are Productive, But Death Cuts Efficiency

Whatever Their Motives, Moms Who Kill Kids Still Shock Us

Lawyer Says Client Is Not That Guilty

This kind of carelessness is unbelievable. Lots of people are being paid lots of money to create these ridiculous headlines. Hopefully going forward the newspapers and websites will at least make some effort to stop the madness.

HILLARY CLINTON ADOPTS ALIEN BABY

Back in the day it was normal for almost anyone standing in line at any grocery store to be bored out of their mind. What do you do then? You take one of the ever so strange publications in the rack and read the most outrageous stories that were obviously nothing but BS in tabloids like The National Inquirer, The Sun, and The Daily Record. I’m pleased to announce that most if not all of them still exist but these days they’re mostly on-line. My current favorite is The Weekly World News. They take legitimate stories and then spice them up with some of the worst headlines and facts that are twisted beyond belief. They are nothing more than hysterically funny comic relief. Here are a few samples of their work:

Alien Backs Clinton!

Bat Child Found in Cave!

Half-Human Half-Fish Found in Florida!

Titanic Baby Found Alive!

Bug Size UFO Found on Playground!

And you thought I was kidding. Here are a few more of their most outrageous stories and headlines. You can’t help but smile and shake your head after reading them.

11-YEAR-OLD BOY RAPED – BY SEX STARVED MAID WITH AIDS

BABY CATCHES BULLET WITH HIS GUMS

KID WITH THREE ARMS IS BASEBALL SENSATION

I MADE MYSELF PREGNANT WITH A TURKEY BASTER

ANT ARMY EATS 935 PEOPLE

SWORD SWALLOWER LAUGHS SO HARD – HE SLIT HIS THROAT

HAIL THE SIZE OF BOWLING BALLS FLATTENS TOWN

CHURCH COMMUNION CAN SPREAD AIDS

It’s interesting to sit back and enjoy “fake news” for a change that isn’t carefully disguised and worded by the Mainstream Media and all of our straight-shooting politicians. If you’d like to see more stop off at their website: weeklyworldnews.com. It’s worth a few laughs which we definitely need more of these days.

START YOUR WEEK WITH A LAUGH

07/20/2022 “More Stupid Headlines”   Leave a comment

I stumbled across a rather large collection of really stupid newspaper headlines this week. I just can’t resist throwing a few of them your way. This kind of stuff just boggles the mind. The first one is the classic screw up and must be seen again.

DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN

PROSTITUTES APPEAL TO THE POPE

PANDA MATING FAILS, VETERINARION TAKES OVER

CLINTON WINS BUDGET, MORE LIES AHEAD

MINERS REFUSE TO WORK AFTER DEATH

I especially like the Clinton one. I wonder if the editor got reprimanded. That would have been a big NO-NO for a liberal newspaper. Let’s continue.

COUPLE SLAIN, POLICE SUSPECT HOMICIDE

DEAF MUTE GETS NEW HEARING IN KILLING

QUEEN MARY HAVING BOTTOM SCRAPED

ILLITERATE? WRITE TODAY FOR FREE HELP

LOW WAGES SAID KEY TO POVERTY

It’s hard to believe just how many of these I’ve collected. I should start posting only the ones that are well written and correct. It’s a much smaller number to deal with.

OVER THE HUMP DAY

07/15/2022 “No Editing”   Leave a comment

When I’m writing this blog, I continuously edit myself because I make tons of errors in spelling and grammar. It concerns me only because I don’t care to look like a moron when I’m posting some of my material. I wish I could say the same for everyone, but I can’t. As I read through my research material, I continually find mistakes, obvious mistakes, that have made it through three levels of editors and finally published and released to the public. It boggles my mind some of the things I’ve read in recent weeks and I’m going to share some of them with you now. It still amazes me how people rely on newspapers and their alleged accuracy. It’s time for some really stupid headlines.

  • Police Suspicious After Body Found in a Graveyard
  • Male infertility Can Be Passed on to Children
  • Iraq Head Seeks Arms
  • Plane Too Close to Ground, Crash Probe
  • Two Convicts Evade Noose, Jury Hung

Can you believe this stuff? I can’t. Now I want to move on to some other things that I’ve noticed on websites like Craigslist. It’s apparent to me that editing is not permitted on these sites and here’s the results:

  • Free Yorkshire Terrier: eight years old. Unpleasant little dog.
  • Georgia Peaches – California grown -$.89 per pound
  • Joining nudist colony, must sell washer and dryer – $300
  • Wanted: 50 girls for stripping machine operators in factory.
  • Dog for sale: Eats anything and is fond of children.

That’s about enough for me. As Ron White always says, “You can’t fix stupid”.

How about I just throw a little of everything your way on this fine Friday morning. I’ll start with a few apparently unedited newspaper headlines. I certainly hope the editors that approved these don’t get paid too much.

War Dims Hope for Peace

Red Tape Holds Up New Bridges!

Hospitals are Sued by 7 Foot Doctors

Juvenile Court to Try Shooting Defendant

If Strike Isn’t Settled Quickly, It May Last Awhile

Next on my list for today are a few retro bumper stickers. They seem to make more sense than these headlines did.

I Don’t Break for Pedestrians

Learn From Your Parents Mistakes-Use Birth Control

I’m Not a Complete Idiot-Some Parts are Missing

He Who Laughs Last Thinks Slowest

See, I told you they were better than the headlines. And last but not least, a quote you should be glad you didn’t make. I’m not a fan of either Nancy Pelosi or Barabara Boxer but the award for the stupidest quote goes to Barabara. She won by a nose.

“Those who survived the San Francisco earthquake said, “Thank God I’m still alive.” But of course, those who died – their lives will never be the same again.”

CALIFORNIA IS SO PROUD

Let’s start this silly post with another really stupid headline. I’ve always wondered how much the headline writer’s get paid and are they ever fired for these kinds of mistakes. They probably never get fired; they’re usually promoted to Editor.

COLD WAVE LINKED TO TEMPERATURES

Let us move onto another of my favorite categories, Retro Bumper Stickers. I’m pretty sure my better-half still has the second one on her current car.

YOU! Out of the gene pool!

Don’t Drink and Drive – You Might Spill Your Beer.

As always, I like throwing a quote into the mix. Here’s a pearl of wisdom from Coco Chanel, one of the hottest women ever (in her 20’s & 30’s).

Her Best Look!

Β β€œThe most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

And last but not least, an honorable mention to another of our favorite stupid criminals.

NOT ALL THERE

Oklahoma City – Dennis Newton was on trial for the armed robbery of a convenience store in a district court when he fired his lawyer. The Assistant District Attorney said Newton, 47, was doing a fair job of defending himself until the store manager testified that Newton was the robber. Newton jumped up, accused the woman of lying and then said, “I should have blown your [expletive] head off.” The defendant paused, then quickly added, “-if I’d been the one that was there.” The jury took 20 minutes to convict Newton and recommend a 30-year sentence.

ENJOY YOUR DAY

Rude Limerick

A hapless young fellow named Schmuck,

Considers himself out of luck.

Though he’s petted and wooed,

When he tries to get screwed,

He finds that virgins don’t give a fuck.

Today is the perfect day for a pile of miscellaneous information that you didn’t realize you were missing. First a “Stupid Headline”, then a quote from the late Larry King, and thirdly a few retro bumper stickers to take you back to the 70’s. Last but not least two children’s limericks. Enjoy!

😝😝😝

STUDENT EXCITED ABOUT DAD GETTING HEAD JOB

β€œI never learned anything while I was talking.” – Larry King

GUNS CAUSE CRIME, LIKE FLIES CAUSE GARBAGE

NOT ALL WOMEN ARE FOOLS, SOME ARE SINGLE

I DON’T CARE WHAT YOUR OTHER CAR IS, WHAT YOU LOVE, OR WHAT YOU’D RATHER BE DOING

☘☘☘

There once was an organic leek

That had managed to learn how to speak.

At the site of the knife,

It would fear for its life,

And go: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!

☘☘☘

There was a young girl named Miss Muffet

Who sat down one day on a tuffet.

She’d sooner have had

A chair, I might add,

But sometimes you just have to rough it.

ENJOY YOUR DAY (TGIF)
