Thread Name: BS: Funniest Tabloid Headline Ever
Subject: RE: BS: Funniest Tabloid Headline Ever
Not necessarily from tabloids, but some all-time classics are:

When Mr. Onassis was looking for a California estate, he was photographed while surveying one that formerly belonged to Buster Keaton. Headline?

Aristotle Contemplating the Home of Buster



OR,

When a delegate at the UNO (predecessor to the UN) dozed off during a lengthy speech by one of the Arab states' delegates, he was photographed. Headline:

Ali Babbles and the Forty Winks



OR,

When the Royal yacht entered Halifax harbour, ignored the buoys and almost collided with a small freighter, the headline was (of course):

Britannia Waives the Rules
