This week kicks off our official Headline of the Year contest. I'm finishing up the last mainpage quarterfinal thread, which will have voting enabled through tomorrow morning, and then all of the mainpage and subtab headlines will be coming at you this week, starting with the Mainpage contest tomorrow and the subtab contests tomorrow through Thursday, with supplemental contests after.
This has been one of the better years for headlines. Thanks to the submitters who do so much to make us all laugh. Well done, the lot of you.
