Strange & Funny Headlines: January 2014 Edition
For some months I have posted a series of Hub articles entitled "Headlines That Don't Match The Photos". Well, this month my crop of newspaper headlines gathered from various sources included a few that simply didn't have an ironic or out-of-place photo to go along with the leading news story. However, I found them just as humorous and so decided to revamp the series accordingly. So now I present for your reading amusement, the first edition of Strange & Funny Headlines. I hope you will enjoy them, and remember -just as near-sighted newspaper editors prove everyday- life is too short to take things toooo seriously..
This headline was forwarded to me just today, and as someone who does not keep up with sports, I had to look up the story to verify if this Richard Sherman is a woman or not. From what I could find, Richard Sherman is NOT a woman, though admittedly, the lovely dreadlocks threw me off a little.

I don't know what is worse here: the fact this non-fiction book showed up on a page about fiction, or that, in fact, it is fiction.
Just seeing this one tells you that the Healthy Secrets section probably includes nifty suggestions like running in front of a fast-moving locomotive in order to build muscles and eating arsenic to relieve stress.
The Chris Christie family must be so proud...which is more than I can say for the Sopranos family.
Thank GOD for government-funded university studies! Otherwise I would still be believing that the sun causes darkness and alcohol consumption is the leading cause of sobriety.
See what I mean? Shocking how much more knowledgeable than the rest of us these government-sponsored geniuses are!
Believe it or not, this is not a promo for the Grand Tetons - though I'm sure her husband or boyfriend is just as proud.
And speaking of proud, Catholic readers must have just loved the editorial professionalism that went into writing this headline item!
