Not Funny Headlines

None of these are funny nor amusing......yet.........well, it seems Yahoo rather likes the tabloid style headlines.

  2. Christine, I did not follow up on the stories. The headlines told me enough.

    JayLa, indeed macabre. While we are alive, we like to reinforce our aliveness by the death of others. Or maybe they are just cheap attention grabbing headlines.

  3. I think Yahoo is taking the 'News of the World' approach to lure us from Google's clutches.

  7. Kath, Yahoo is Google now. I think they have employed a London headline writer.

    River, it certainly must have been quite a knife.

    Grace, they wouldn't dare use a headline like that if it was a local story.

    Rubye, I think it makes us feel better in our 'wellness' and injury free state.

  8. I think they've been pinched from the Daily Fail, they all sound very familiar. Oops I don't read Daily Fail...

  10. Haha, I thought they were fake headlines. And perhaps they are? Does anyone actually click on them to 'read' the 'story'??
