I don't know if you woke up feeling excited today, but I did. That's because we're gearing up for the Headline of the Year contests. I just grabbed all the top headlines from December 2012 through October 2013, and I'm starting the process of formatting them all. And just glancing through them as I start to tweak formatting, it's neat to see some of the candidates that are in the mix for this year's contest:
- Woman crashes at a doughnut shop one day, then into an eye care center the next. Police: was that crash better, or worse? Better? Or worse?
- Homeless man falls to death in an elevator shaft. That is wrong on so many levels
- Pianist caught in snow blower. Men everywhere flinch instinctively
-City council to get tough on heavy water users. We're looking at YOU, Robert Oppenheimer
The first voting thread will likely be tomorrow morning in Totalfark; if you don't have Totalfark, you'll have to wait until they finish voting and then you can participate in the quarterfinals when those get posted in December. Every year there are a lot of fantastic headlines that miss the quarterfinals cut by a few votes. If you want a chance to change the course of the contest, this is your chance.
For everyone else, these are the top headlines from last week. Enjoy.
