In Praise of Whomever Writes BBC Headlines

A few random selections from my RSS feed. I especially love the placement of the quotation marks:

Giffords ‘speaks, asks for toast’

Met finds phone hacking ‘victims’

‘Serious’ cases hit by rights ruling

Butt investigated before spot-fixing affair

Howell ‘dropped cable’ into bath

Bangladesh girl ‘bled to death’

Cancer deaths in Europe ‘to fall’

Level crossing ‘madness’ warning

Jail for E. coli takeaway manager

‘Super head’ Dame honour revoked

Woman quizzed on ‘buttocks’ death

British comedy at its best.

    Are you sure the “headline writer” isn’t the “guy” from Hipster Runoff? http://www.hipsterrunoff.com/

    The ‘person’ who writes the ‘headlines’ is way ‘funnier’ than ‘any’ hipster.
