What is the funniest news story that you have ever heard/read in the media?
I just like the headlines sometimes. I think it was last week I saw Man Shoots Self & Wife at Gun Safety Class. If you read the article it got worse... apparently he did so on accident. No one was killed, that helps with the humor bit.
There was a story with the headline "Man killed to death" I saw a while back... sometimes I wonder if English is taught in journalism school.
The one where a man sued BMW because he bought a motorcycle and the structure of the seat gave him an erection that lasted two years. LOL
the multiple times that the media reported the deaths of people who hadn't died. The most memorable was Jeff Goldblum, because after the story circulated he appeared on the Colbert Report and did a touching peice about how he would be missed.
I was sitting in the doctor's office a couple of months ago, watching a local news channel (CP24, out of Toronto) that had headlines scrolling at the bottom of the screen, and one of them read: "woman stalked by wild turkey, leaves house at 6am to avoid the bird". I laughed out loud in the middle of the waiting room.
Oh that reminds me of a news story here where a family looked out their window to find a bear had crawled into their SUV. The bear apparently took the brake off and then proceeded to roll down a hill and into a tree before getting out and leaving.
Thanks for all the stories! The funniest news story that I have ever read was about the dentist who pulled out all of her ex boyfriend's teeth when he booked a dentist appointment with her.

What are the funniest actual names you have ever heard?What are some truly awfully funny names you have ever heard. One of my favorites is Young Boozer. The only rule for answering this question is the name has to belong to a real person, no made up names please!

Who is the funniest politician you have ever heard of?I have seen so many "funny" politicians in our country. Even the other countries also must be having these kinds of politicians. Would you name a few or one 'greatest'? and why you consider them as funny?
