    You know that they'd been itching to write this kind of headline for a while.

    Still the best headline ever (from a local paper back in the late 80s/early 90s):

    JOGGER BEATS OFF NAKED ATTACKER

    sort of like "that didn't end well" - if things were going well, then they wouldn't have ended! :shrug:

    This is, believe it or not, from the same newspaper that ran "Students get first hand job experience" last year.

    For those who haven't spent time in that particular world, one of the fallback cliches for headline writers is to dig through the story for a quote and pull it out as a headline rather than use a boring old "So-and-So wins Miss Teen Kansas Whatever." In this case, the girl was talking about some challenge and said "This week taught me that this is definitely doable."

    The quote headline works about 10% of the time, is either lame or nonsensical about 89% of the time ... and this is the other 1%.

    There is a saying among copy editors: You need a dirty mind to run a clean newspaper.

    I have a picture I took of a pub in London called "Knobs And Knockers." :shock: Obviously some kind of reference to doors or something but really? Come on now.

    I have no idea what else you could be referring to.

    Anyhow, I’m off down The Old Cock.

    That is fucking hilarious. If I saw that happen, I'd point at the woman who wasn't breast feeding and say "Ha-Ha!", like Nelson Muntz.
