There is a story (probably apocryphal) that the Western Mail in Wales used to publish it's first edition without being properly proof read leading to the excellent headline 'Queen Pisses Over the Severn Bridge' amended to 'Passes' in following editions.
Not a headline as such but I did hear a commentator at the Olympics mention whilst watching the weightlifting that he was 'very particular about competitors having a clean snatch'.
