While I’m here, Sham journals scam authors is pretty good from JA. But really: a journal with no website? Do they still write with ink quills?
I preferred this one a few weeks ago: http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/viewer.aspx
Particularly like the menacing “Told you not to make a fuss!” caption.
Hmm… looks like that link probably won’t take you to the right place. Try this one instead.
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?
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]
Look at this video to appreciate the depths of despair.
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.
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
