Fun With News Headlines

If there’s one reason why young people don’t keep up with current events, it’s because of boring news headlines accompanied by dull matching photographs. Over the weekend, I made an amazing discovery.  If you alter the picture, the headline becomes much more enticing.  Below are some examples linking to actual stories.

  1. Well done! Back when they were all the rage in 2002, I had a purple Juicy outfit (hoodie with matching stretchy pants). Whenever I wore it, I made my husband call me Grimace….ha!!

  2. Poor Hostess, or rather, the poor hostess (?) I would absolutely read more articles with images that provocative! How can I turn a page away from a Transformer? It’s just an electric experience! Well done!

  3. Thank you for brightening up my Tuesday! (arguably the worst day of the week)

  4. First off, I cannot pass up a reference to Grimace; the Purple Gentleman has a certain level of moxy that is on short supply these days. Secondly, I found it pretty radical (throwback phrase of the day) that I had actually read each of the stories that you referenced in your post. The pictures did make them better. Bravo my friend. Bravo.
