    Occasionally you run across a headline in the news so obscure and obtuse that you just need to share. Our thread begins with a headline today from our local Madison Wisconsin NBC affiliate...

    "75 chopsticks found in pants of man accused of trespassing".


    ok, go.
  2. 75?

    what was he going to use the odd one for?

    Story in a regional weekly newspaper - headline reads ...

    "Manure Management Seminar set for St. Michael"

    Maybe there were only 74 and the extra one was the other thing in his pants. :D
  5. I like the way you think
  6. CNN headlines and taglines make me cringe daily. CNN runs constantly in the breakroom at work and we can't change the channel. Completely nonsensical, uninformative, and rife with spelling and grammatical errors.

    That was just so messed up ^^^^^^
  9. I just saw that they are advising their guests to drink the water 'at their own risk.' Ummmm........hmmmmm............(scratches head).
  10. I think most of the people working at that network think CNN spells "cat". :eyebrow:
  11. "...in other news: Prices of wet bar beverages in LA hotel rooms triple!"

    OP, since you're in Madison, you might actually know what this was talking about.

    Headline in the State Journal a month or two ago:
    "Men Found Guilty in Ball Attack"
  14. That sounds about right ;)

    "Popivich yells at Howard."

    Slow news day, I guess.
  16. ...and 11 guests elect to stay after being offered other accommodations!
