Well, since last week we've run two Headline of the Year contests for Jun 2011 and Jul 2011 (July in particular was an outstanding month for headlines). I also just submitted a voting-enabled thread to vote on HOY candidates for Aug 2011, which will be at the top of the Totalfark Discussion page for the next 20 minutes or so, but voting will be enabled for at least the next 24 hours. If you have TF, go there and vote now.
If you're not TF, don't worry--the top 10 from each month will be selected for quarterly threads that will start near the beginning of December and will run through December 15th this year. But if you want to influence what makes it to those quarterly threads, this is your chance.
Headlines Of The Week for Sun 2011-10-16 to Sat 2011-10-22:
