Strange & Funny Headlines: September 2014 Edition

Updated on September 11, 2014

Welcome to the latest edition of Strange and Funny Headlines. The following newspaper headlines have been gathered from various sources around the world, and are posted here strictly for entertainment purposes. Some of the headlines are amusing for the editor mishaps, while others have photographs that don’t go along with the story, and still others are just funny because of the article itself. While I cannot vouch for the validity of every item, I hope you will get a kick out of them as I have!

Emphasis on ordinary flying cat here, as opposed to all those fancy-smancy purebred types of flying cats.

It is nice to know California's Jerry Brown has turned his back on his hippie-dippie "Governor Moonbeam" past to become an upright, responsible citizen.

They couldn't share the booze with the kid? So much for the selflessness of the professional foster care industry!

In case you missed the last Emmy Awards, the fashion trends appear to have taken a drastic dive for the worse...or the better, depending on your perspective.

But we will always have celebrities to teach us how to live healthy and gorgeously as we do so. Just like the glowing example of Keith Richards here.

Mmm, cookies that are both crunchy and calcium rich!

Good thing I saw this next headline - all these years I thought the symptoms of death were an aversion to chocolate and an overwhelming desire to have my eyelashes jerked out by the roots!

Because, as Kevin Coster (might have) said, if you erect it, they will come.

I don't know about this..people generally know when I'm feeling depressed by the way I traipse through the valley singing about how to climb every mountain. But to each their own.

I don't know about blindness, but my eyes HURT just seeing this creature.

I suspect the writer of this political headline was trying to take some subtle liberty with the candidate names here. But it could be I'm just being completely cynical.

One of my favorite headlines of all time here. The headline is suggestive, but the story itself is an udderly wonderful endorsement for the dairy industry!

Too soon? Maybe. But if Joan were still with us, I suspect she'd probably find it as amusing as the editor that approved the page.

And if you want to talk about insensitive...the writer of these headlines is either the most cynical news writer on earth or Saint Hills is just one mean, mean town.

    Hi bethperry,

    This is the first of your bloopers series that I've read, and I'm looking forward to catching up with the others. I love this sort of humour, and have a great kinship with others who detect it in the media. Thanks for the chuckles! ~Cynthia

    Hi Will, I remember that song best from the Elvira movie, Mistress of the Dark. It might be whiny, but that tune sure sticks to you!

    Thanks much for the VU :)

    Of all the sappy songs of my youth, none were worse than 'Town Without Pity'. I despised that whiny song.

    Voted Up and Awesome!

    Many of these errors were funny, but you're right, the Joan Rivers one was insensitive. At any rate, you came up with a great list of newspaper bloopers:)

    These are hilarious Beth. I love this series and always look forward to your next instalment. I did vote for you as "Funniest Hubber" in the recent awards. Voted up.
