It’s been a while since I’ve posted any in this occasional series. I’ve been collected a few of them, and here’s two that tickled me relatively recently.
First up, this one from the Daily Telegraph. I’m not quite sure what exactly makes this fantastic. It could be the hyperbole. It could be the linking of two things that have no connection whatsoever. Either way, it made me chuckle:
World Cup 2018: death of Paul the Octopus summed up a tough week for England bid
Secondly comes this one. Perhaps it’s the fact that a fictional character is blamed for something. It’s probably also that the headline includes something about owls.
India blames Harry Potter for dwindling owl population
If you see any fantastic headlines worthy of addition to the series, please leave them in the comments, tweet or e-mail me.
