I bow to your headline writing greatness!
 
2004-03-25 09:30:05 AM  
As do I.

Awesome headline. Truly a thing of beauty.

Is it 'Peter Griffin Presents a Peter Griffin Production Directed by Lois Griffin'"

Ha! There's another guy in Wham! that's not famous. What an obscure reference!
 
2004-03-25 02:43:24 PM  
ditto on the headline kudos.

WHAM! is the inspiration for The Smiths' Panic. There was a report of something terrible on the radio, followed by an upbeat WHAM! song.

Panic on the streets of London
Panic on the streets of Birmingham
I wonder to myself
Could life ever be sane again ?
The Leeds side-streets that you slip down
I wonder to myself
Hopes may rise on the Grasmere
But Honey Pie, you're not safe here
So you run down
To the safety of the town
But there's Panic on the streets of Carlisle
Dublin, Dundee, Humberside
I wonder to myself

Burn down the disco
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the music that they constantly play
IT SAYS NOTHING TO ME ABOUT MY LIFE
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the music they constantly play


On the Leeds side-streets that you slip down
Provincial towns you jog 'round
Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ
(repeat a few dozen times)

That is all, carry on. /tangent

truly an exquisite headline. Nice.

I heard that they are giong to remake one of Wham's ! song in honor of George Michael getting caught in the reststop. It's called, "Wank me off before you go-go".

I think we have a second submission to the Headline Hall Of Fame discussed earlier (this week?)...
 
2004-03-25 02:48:19 PM  
EXCELLENT!!
 
2004-03-25 02:48:34 PM  
kudos to the headliner

Best. Headline. EVAR!
 
2004-03-25 02:51:59 PM  
Coming soon on DVD to a WalMart near you.
 
2004-03-25 02:52:40 PM  
Mel Brooks should help them write this, the resulting song "springtime for fister" would be a huge hit.
 
2004-03-25 02:53:31 PM  
I think this is the first headline i've felt compelled to compliment, and I've enjoyed many.

2004-03-25 02:54:47 PM  
well done!
 
2004-03-25 02:54:53 PM  
Didn't Boy George try something like this and fall miserably? I know he was backed by Rosie O'Donnell, so who'd be rich/stupid enough to consider backing George Michael? This idea has "burning pustule of asscrackers" written all over it.
 
2004-03-25 02:57:16 PM  
Er George was arrested for exposing himself. There was no glory holes involved. Besides the arresting officer exposed himself first.
 
2004-03-25 02:59:39 PM  
One of the best headlines submitted on Fark.evaaaaar!
 
2004-03-25 02:59:49 PM  
Guilty feet truly have no rhythm.
 
2004-03-25 03:00:15 PM  
Two thumbs up on the headline!

Why does that expression sound dirty all of a sudden?
 
2004-03-25 03:01:10 PM  
Hollywood is out of ideas.
 
2004-03-25 03:01:16 PM  
headline. yum.

So you claim it was a TRAP?!

2004-03-25 03:01:21 PM  
Freschel- Don't let mere facts detract from what is a classic headline!
 
2004-03-25 03:02:00 PM  
THAT SUBMITTER GIVES GREAT HEADLINES
 
2004-03-25 03:03:25 PM  
Andrew Ridgely (spelling) is the other girl in WHAM!....
 
2004-03-25 03:03:39 PM  
Generations can't forget Wham! because THE GOGGLES...THEY DO NOTHING...
 
2004-03-25 03:04:34 PM  
Freschel seems to have some "insider" information on the arrest...

Obligatory kudos to submitter. ; )
 
2004-03-25 03:04:59 PM  
I am fully aware of who Wham! is but I don't understand why the headline is so great. Can someone explain?
 
2004-03-25 03:05:41 PM  
Best.Headline.EVER


ArnoldBabar: Too bad that guy didn't do what his shirt said.
 
2004-03-25 03:06:20 PM  
Heh. And honestly, I used to love Wham. I think I was the only black person in America who begged her mother to buy this album. Come on, who can resist the allure of "Careless Whisper"? Who, I say?

I think we have a second submission to the Headline Hall Of Fame discussed earlier (this week?)...

What was the earlier one?
 
2004-03-25 03:07:24 PM  
...Glory whole (hole)...
 
2004-03-25 03:07:27 PM  
ahem. headline bravo. (golf clap)
 
2004-03-25 03:07:58 PM  
This was a headline posting, link goes nowhere.

Outfarkingstanding.
 
2004-03-25 03:08:05 PM  
What kills me is George Michael denies he's gay for years, gets nailed in a public restroom and finally admits it saying he never realized he was gay. Fine. How can he watch one of his own Wham concerts and say 'oh no, I'm not gay'?.
 
2004-03-25 03:08:20 PM  
What's the big deal about the headline? It's good, but...

Got no problem with people making lots of money off this, but is it his only motivation here? Contrary to what he's saying, there ain't no big demand for a Wham! reunion. When George Michael says he thinks a project involving his own music is gonna suck (no pun intended), then it's really going to suck because his music sucked even when he thought it was good.
 
2004-03-25 03:09:46 PM  
... because the 80s didn't suck enough the first time around.

sort of like Richard Simmons working in the chocolate factory packing fudge. or Ellen's night job as a carpet cleaner.
 
2004-03-25 03:10:17 PM  
Short, to the point, multiple meanings, I dunno.
 
2004-03-25 03:10:47 PM  
He said, "Those songs are borderline in terms of presentation, and the only reason we got away with the pastiche of them is because they were done with so much conviction and big hair and big teeth, and genuine fun and passion."

Using the word "pastiche" to describe anything of the Wham oeuvre is a waste of good vocabulary.

/so's use of the word "oeuvre"

msubizkit4

do a GIS for "glory hole" with safe search off and the joke will be explained to you.

(NSFW....duh!)

Incidentally, I recently learned that going to the cottage for holidays should not be referred to as "cottaging" in the UK. Good to know.
 
2004-03-25 03:12:07 PM  
I for one, would like to welcome this headline writing overlord
