Fantastic Headlines 33-36: Man Bites Dog special

As I mentioned in a previous Fantastic Headlines blog, “Man bites dog” is given sometimes as an example of what news is. It’s no surprise, then, that media outlets tend to cover “Man Bites Dog” stories because of the, ah, significance involved. Here are four of the favourite “Man bites dog” stories I’ve found:

Strangely, it seems to be poor old police dogs that keep being on the receiving end of a man’s jaw. For instance:

Man bites dog (and a policeman)

The sub-editor on this Connecticut website wanted to put a bit more vim into this Fantastic Headline, which is much more flowery than your standard “Man bites dog” fare:

Man sinks teeth into police dog

This Canadian news story tickled me:

Man bites dog biting dog

And finally, because it’s nice to end on a high, a story with a happy ending. I love the jokey exclamation mark on this, too:

Man bites dog and wins compensation!

As ever, if you find any Fantastic Headlines please let me know.
