Thread Name: BS: Funniest Tabloid Headline Ever
Subject: RE: BS: Funniest Tabloid Headline Ever
I saw that one.
I'm reminded, though, of one from several years ago: Adam and Eve Were Space Aliens. Mister's grandmother was just beginning to show signs of dementia, and while we were visiting, she began to talk about this tabloid. (Mister's dad gets a kick out of them - he says they're comic books for grownups.) She'd say, "Did you see this? Adam and Eve were space aliens. Do you believe that shit?" Then five minutes later, "Can you believe that shit? Adam and Eve were space aliens." This went on for a little while.
While it was painful to watch her decline, this particular incident was humorous, thanks to the subject matter.
