    The best one ever was on a Metro newspaper early last year. The picture was a of a board of train times, with everyone cancelled or delayed, and the headline was a pun on Network Rail...the legendary...

    Network Fail

    My favorite headline (not including the Weekly World News) was in the New York Post, circa 1977:

    Nuke Satellite Runs Wild

    The NY Post is the undisputed headline champion in the USA.
    England and Germany have some pretty strong contenders.

    when Ike Turner died, I think the New York Post (if I remember correctly) had a headline that read "IKE TURNER FINALY BEATS TINA TURNER TO DEATH".

    I felt a smidgen bad about laughing at that one...
