Headlines That Don't Match The Photos #3

Updated on July 15, 2012

I must take a hiatus from writing Hubs to finish a book and don’t expect to be around too much in the next little while (I do plan to check comments daily and perhaps leave a comment on other Hubs every now and then). But before taking off I wanted to share the latest batch of More Headlines That Don’t Match The Photo. I hope you enjoy these, and in case my project takes longer than expected I wish you all a terrific and safe rest of the summer!

And if you want to see the last batch, here is the link to that Hub http://bethperry.hubpages.com/hub/More-headlines-that-dont-match-the-photo







Yeah, sometimes you just can't trust the romantic power of civilization-destructive weather.



And we already knew you can't trust those gadgets advertised on TV too good to be true.




The accompanying fortune cookie might read, "Dry mitt and steamy rice not good union make."




Now you know why not to bother putting doughnuts or pizza in your Care packages to Ethiopia.





AND the book is also a best-seller in the pharmacy's first-aid section!



A blast from the past the men of Nevada are still trying to live down.




Rumor has it the good minister ended up with a walrus that ended up divorcing him for the ugly mustache he grew.



And yet this town has the highest percentage of saccharin soccer moms in the nation. Go figure.



This place must just adore children, huh?



I don't know..I suspect there's some poodle in that pedigree!



I could have told the sociologists this four horrendous seasons ago.



This one's a real blast from the past. I wonder what their grandchildren look like?



Protect the women? Unless this is an official nude beach I say PROTECT THE CHILDREN for god's sake!



Rumor has it that once the carcass was cleaned the Men's Club had it stuffed and mounted...

    I think I'm gonna have to go back to reading a real newspaper instead of the web papers. Too funny!!!

    Well, horror is more along my lines anyway. Ask any of my past girlfriends. Be sure to keep us up to date on the project. It sounds exciting.

    Thanks cam8510. It isn't a romance but a horror film. My readers may be disappointed, but I may be tempted to write a romance screenplay in the future.

    Yes, I have a children's collection as well. "Spooky" stories with some humor in them :)

    Well good luck. That is exciting news. This would be one of the romance novels I suppose? I see that you've also written for children.

    cam8510, thank you so much and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    I've turned the book into a screenplay and with luck I'm hoping to have that finished by the weekend :)

    I'm so sad to hear about the honey supply. Thanks for the great entertainment. I thoroughly enjoyed this. I hope your book is coming along well, maybe even finished.

    Understand the little superstition and a first person novelized para/horror sounds awesome Beth- get that autograph pen ready!

    Thanks Alastar, glad you enjoyed them!

    Well, I'm a little superstitious and don't like giving away a title until closer to completion. But I can tell you it is a paranormal/horror novel based on a true life experience. And thanks again, that is very kind of you :)

    These were some very interesting combos Beth- wicked funny and great mis-match picks. Wasn't aware you were in the process of finishing a book-- um, any clue as to subject title? Anyway congrats Beth, knowing you it's going to be a must read!

    randslam, the writing is a little slower than I like, but I'm expecting it to pick up once the kids are back in school.

    Thanks much for the VU and I appreciate you dropping by!

    Haha, some great finds! Only recently did I see the heading "ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE" in big bold black lettering, then some houses that have been bombed. Not as funny, but trust the Metro - a free British newspaper found free on buses - to do something like that.

    Voted up, funny and interesting!
