Thread Name: BS: Funniest Tabloid Headline Ever
Subject: RE: BS: Funniest Tabloid Headline Ever
The silliest headlines I can remember both came from the "Sunday Sport" in its early days.
"World War 2 Bomber found on the Moon" This was accompanied by a photograph of, what appeared to be a model of a B29 on a ground of what looked suspiciously like cat litter
The following week it ran the headline:
"World War 2 Bomber on Moon Mysteriously Disappears" with a photo showing the same cat litter sans model
Oh, I've just remembered a third (same source)
"London Bus Found in the Antarctic" Photo showing a London double decker bus (RM I think) lodged at an angle in an iceburg, my favourite part was the supposed quote from a London Transport spokesman "He's a bit off his route".
