Headlines That Don't Match The Photos #4

Updated on December 5, 2012

The news is often pretty dark and dreary. When the usual fare of abysmal news get us down we have to take our humor where we can find it. If you keep your eyes open, though, you often find that the best source of humor comes straight out of the same newspapers saturated with the depressing stuff. If you're sick of negative news, take a breather from the same old, same old and continue on to this month's edition of Headlines That Don't Match The Photos.

And if you'd like to check out the previous batch they can be found here:

Whether you're an adult or child, dinosaur news is always popular among readers.

Politics is a never-ending source of debate, contention and in this case, maybe peanuts and crackerjack

For those thinking of taking a mid-winter vacation, it looks like Disney is going up against some stiff competition this year

The NASA rover, Curiosity, has been sending back some spectacular photographs from Mars. But I have to say this is the most stunning one yet

Folks who keep up with the British royals got some happy news this week

Not to be outdone, fans of the Obama family are forever speculating that a blessed event might come to the White House, too

Unfortunately, not all news is so sweet. Violence and mayhem still grab headlines

As does the nefarious, underbelly of crime

Not to mention the exploits of daring criminal masterminds

Weather-related hardships

But luckily, news from the world of culture sometimes gives us a reprieve to the negative stuff

The world of medicine still brings us hopeful news

And then there are those heart-warming stories that have the power to renew our faith in the human race.

    Funny! I bet the Methodist Church is getting a lot of conversions this Christmas.

    And no wonder Michelangelo took so long to paint the ceiling.

    Such an enjoyable hub!

    LOL, so funny! I heard such a jocke: lets imagine you have a picture of a man beating a woman and you need a headline to this photo. Just open ANY page of any newspaper and you are sure to find at least one suitable headline or even more! (By the way - try it , it works) :)

    Alastar, much appreciated and thanks much.

    But now you have me stumped..nurse..expiring..Kate Middleton...maybe I've spent too much time looking for the wanky stuff and not enough to the real news?

    And Oh, I hear you on Joan Rivers...recent close-ups of that lady scare the bejesus out of me. She's my MOM's age for pete's sake! Time for a little graceful aging, you know? lol

    Your a master at these Beth! Like your recent funny labels one this is great humorous viewing - and reading too with your witty leaders. Let's see - they run the gamut here from a fitting Joan Rivers- sorry Joan fans, to a tragically ironic one, a sexy and unexpected Mars face to an hilarious crack pic and more. Up n funny - Gotta share the laughs too! By the way Beth, whats with the nurse expiring in Kate Middleton's hospital room all about? Something smells fishy in Denmark there.:)

    That is hilarious! I am so relieved that aloe cures even the mightiest burns! And bravo for the Methodists for choosing a female pastor...I am sure they will never again have to worry about a dwindling congregation! Next week, funding for extra seating!

    Great hub!
