One of the better contests at the end of the year is this one: the context headlines. These are the ones that you usually can't tell what they're about just by reading the headline, then you click the link and it smacks you right in the face. Here are the finalists for this year. Hopefully you won't remember the original threads and will get to enjoy them like it's the first time.

Unfortunately the project was canceled when it was discovered that male subjects drove repeatedly into a wall at high speed, while female subjects drove round in circles until the researchers started screaming at them

Uploading puns/wordplay now. It's a shame that the puns will scare some people off, because the limerick in that contest is magnificent.

I have to agree with ZAZ -- after about 5 entries I got tired of clicking on each one twice to read the original article, then closing out the two tabs.

/yes, I'm lazy

//yes, I definitely appreciate all that Unfreakable does with these contests
