Oh You!

Conan O'Brien has been using his blimp to terrorize Gary Busey. If this isn't the best thing you've heard all week, you must be Gary Busey, and you should probably do something about those gnomes hiding in your bowling shoes

You forgot this one, pure gold!

Au shiat and Benny and dead Jett are by far the best up there. The Gillette headline is also pretty damn good.

I liked the redlit Apple 1 headline better. Bigger than Wings and Benny and dead Jett were my favorites.

The gold related "Au shiat" or "Au noes!" ones are kinda repetitive though. They've been done. Try something new.

Wings and Jett made me laugh out loud in the dark on a crowded inter-city bus. Now I'm the crazy guy whose face is maniacally lit by the faint glowing light if his phone.
