carnifex2005: I don't know about headline of the year but I do know what the comment of the year was (by TheraTx).


Have to agree there. Can't believe I re-read the entire comments. My face hurts now. R.I.P Emmanuelle!

I still can't figure out why some farkers think they can only vote for one. Just like a regular election, you can vote more than once.

Bummed that 'Whitney Houston Beats Bobby Brown to Death' couldn't get some love for overall HOTY.

So far, top two are best two. (Amy winehouse is #2)

I liked the AW one better. Because it was a joke on old news, it played off better without having to read the article.
"WH beats", at it's time, was actual current news DearReader may not have yet, so while you could venture a guess, you had to read the article to be sure. IMO, that detracts from a headline.
