Funny headlines

Posted July 13, 2010

Writing headlines is an art.  You have to compress a lot of information and a little P.T. Barnum into one taut little line.  It doesn't always work out too well, as this gallery demonstrates.

    Or how about this store's sign - "if its in stock - we got it!"

    Years ago I passed a huge sign in the Taco Bell in Cary that read "Now hiring---- 1/2 the fat". It was actually 2 different signs in 2 different front windows but it was still hilarious because they were side by side.........still makes me grin :)

    I was always pretty good at headlines ... but my favorite and the only one I remember was in college in an article about a traffic hazard going at the local College of Optometry parking lot:
    Blind Spot at Optometry Bldg

    Not a headline, but on our way home from work, we pass a sign wanting to advertise a big yard sale. It says "Hugh Yard Sale."
