That was a great spot.

There's a line when it comes to Fark headlines. It's pretty hazy, and it stands well beyond the line used in most societal circles, but this one cross it nonetheless.

That was a little item entitled Hide-and-Seek - very anarchic, very effective, not quite my cup of tea, but very nice for the younger people. Well, the next item the boys have put together takes place in a sitting room. Sorry it's just a sitting room, but the bank account's a bit low after the appallingly expensive production of 'Clochmerle'...
 
2012-02-20 12:55:56 PM  
Yeah. It's pretty rare when I find a Fark headline excessively tasteless and offensive but this is one of those times.

That's a sad farkin' news story...

/And, no, I'm not new here.

Ok - glad it wasn't just me...

The skeletal remains of a 14-year-old Ohio runaway missing since 1999 have been found while the home where she was last seen

Fine police work there, decade old Lou.

And thus are the true d-bags separated from those with a mere d-bag veneer. I am among the former. +1, subby.
 
2012-02-20 01:03:27 PM  
It's 'funny' for Anne Frank because, you know, she was intentionally hiding.


This does indeed cross a line.
 
2012-02-20 01:03:28 PM  
It's not over 'till it's over. I will be the 2011 winnar!

HOTY contender.

....no, there's nothing wrong with me, but thanks for asking.
 
2012-02-20 01:05:45 PM  
Even I feel bad about the headline, and I made fun of the Shawn Powell murder/suicide
 
2012-02-20 01:06:23 PM  
Everybody involved in the case should be fired.
 
2012-02-20 01:06:46 PM  
Not really - this place is full of downright unpleasantness and acerbic wit on a good day, but this story is just really, really, sad. Not a single redeeming feature or uplifting point (other than the family's closure) here so it's not the headline that's screwed up, it's the world we live in.

Including subby? Because I give subby's work an A for effort.
 
2012-02-20 01:07:58 PM  
Gonna chime in here about the headline. It made me laugh out loud when I read it and then I clicked on the link and became instantly horrified with it.

I don't assign all the blame to you, Subby. Sometimes it seems like an arms race.

Please, 1999's champion is still the World Cup's US Women's Soccer team.

They haven't been seen since.

I've been able to find humor in lots of Fark headlines, however ghoulish the story, but this one gave me a sad when I actually read the article.

Subby, I don't blame you--it was a genuinely clever and creative headline. Mods, I likewise don't blame you for green lighting this one. But I see that I'm not alone in being ambivalent about the whole thing.

/RIP, young lady....and I hope your mother is getting at least some "closure" out of this, which must be better than never knowing what happened to one's child.
 
2012-02-20 01:17:43 PM  
I that was a blonde joke first time I heard it...at any rate, headline is OLD...

hey! those pigs cops have been working hard on a lot of stuff. they have closed countless cases of fresh donuts, and imprisoned countless cups of coffee. You can't blame them for not searching a crawlspace under a perp's house for a kid big enough to stuff in a crawlspace. You expect them to be psychic?
Gesse.
 
2012-02-20 01:19:35 PM  
This crossed the line? With all the crap I've read on this site, I would have bet that this would have made no waves what-so-ever. It isn't like subby added the amusing tag.
 
2012-02-20 01:19:52 PM  
Subby's bought a ticket on the hell-bound train!

Interesting police work. He was a suspect. He commits suicide on a different rape case. No one bothers to search his house.

I have to agree.
 
2012-02-20 01:21:56 PM  
Always Wondered when the child rape "funny" headlines would start. Might as well start the merge with 4chan.

/not that I mind
 
2012-02-20 01:23:39 PM  
Wow. For a Darwin award nominee this would be an appropriate headline; for a 14 year old who was likely raped and murdered this is not an appropriate headline.

Bad form, Subby.

You are SUCH an idiot. She didn't make it all the way around the world.
 
2012-02-20 01:28:19 PM  
I submitted this story with a Lovely Bones reference and without humor in the headline. I'm surprised this got greenlight.

The baby wasn't kidnapped, it died of radiation poisoning.

Only the death of a fellow Farker warrents a sympathetic headline.

A random teenage girl gets raped and murdered? Who cares.

Wrong, baby was raped and killed, its body was hidden in the foundations of the house. Wait, what?
