This one's crazy late. We got started on Headline of the Year preliminary threads Tuesday but a project on Wednesday and Thanksgiving yesterday sort of dented the progress I had started. For those of you who have TF, the two threads are here:

December 2011:  http://www.fark.com/comments/7444133

January 2012:  http://www.fark.com/comments/7444462

In the meantime, here are the ones from this week.
