    Headline News.

    Here's some typical online pub fare for you.
    What newspaper headlines can you remember from down the years that you recall as being Funny/Poignant/Whatever.......
    One of my favourites came from the Super Soaraway Sun (natch) way back in '79,and concerned a court case at the Old Bailey, featuring the Liberal party leader, the Right Hon Jeremy Thorpe M.P. and a former male model named Norman Scott.Briefly,and for those too young to remember it,the case centred around Thorpe,who was accused and eventually acquitted of conspriacy to murder his alleged former lover Scott.The whole affair proved to be an outrage at the time, and from which alas,Thorpe's career never recovered,and so perhaps inevitably,one morning as the preceedings were reaching their climax,the headline that was splashed across the whole of the front page was...SCOTT OF THE ARSE ANTICS.......priceless.

    Daily Mirror in 1998 when France won the World Cup.

    Their headline read:

    'Arsenal win World Cup'

    Wally,my favorite sports headline ever i guess,and at the time Mary Poppins was on release would have to be when Inverness Caladonian Thistle were drawn against Celtic,in a cup match and every one expected Celtic to destroy the opposition (3 divisions below) the under dogs won 2-1 !!!!,the headline the next day in the Scotsman- SUPER CALLY ARE FANTASTIC -CELTIC ARE ATROCIOUS !! -that writer must still be living of that little gem,Bry
