It's a thing they line roads in the desolate industrial part of town so they can kill Crystal Gravy and her friends.

I see what they did there.

A car heading down a dead-end street in a desolate New York City industrial area flipped over a wooden curb into a creek, killing four young people returning from a birthday celebration, police and friends of the victims said Saturday.

Great choice of words, there, Associated Press. Good jorb.  :- /

I stand corrected, sir. I know there's a Kingston on Long Island, but I couldn't find it on Google earth, and I found one up the river, but I ain't found none near Jamaica.

Four killed on NY after car flips New into Queens creek

I don't get it.  Is it the 'on' instead of 'in'?  It doesn't have a colon.   Does that mean it was left out like you suggest?

The only joke here is the editor. Otherwise, the gross error in the headline is merely a sad statement on what a charade the media has become.

There really is no joke to get.

Ever driven through Pennsylvania? There's a town named Intercourse! The road signs directing you there (ie. "Intercourse 5mi") got stolen so often the highway department finally stopped replacing them because it was costing too much. And not far away, for those who now can't find Intercourse? Blue Ball.

And of course, there's Hell, Michigan, which needless to say freezes over every single year.

Reading this thread almost made my head explode.

Article's in the Jamaican Observer because they were either Jamaican or American born of Jamaican descent.

NYC being the melting pot that it is, there are numerous tabloids that cover goings on of concern to its various ethnic / cultural communities.

Scene of the mishap: http://goo.gl/maps/2wBqP a real shiathole.
