I was given a handout in class today with examples of how not to write headlines for a newspaper. These are all real headlines that were used at some point in actual newspapers (national and local). Some of them point out the obvious and some of them, when read the wrong way, mean something completely different then what they're meant to. They made me lol.

We were going over these during dinner, they're hilarious.

"Miners refuse to work after death" is probably my favourite. Reminds me of how I will tell people "If I don't survive this, I'll never talk to you again."
