Welcome to Headline of the Year 2020 - Final Voting! Consider each headline as carefully as you wish!  Some are puns, some are wordplay, some are "context" - where you need to click through a few times to read the story or the Fark comments to figure out the joke (and these are often some of the best), some are visual, some are lyrics or verse, and some are just damn clever or a sideways look at the story or the world. Vote for any or all! We don't limit your voting, we really want to see what you laughed at and enjoyed!

Voting starts Saturday, December 5 and ends Monday, December 14, noon Eastern.

Vote, vote, vote, and let's see what you love best for the 2020 Headlines of the Year!

People don't see loss and risk as purely rational agents. Losses weigh more than gains. The difference between 1 and 2% feels bigger than between 50 and 51%. Ergo this going red will hurt more than it going green. Welcome to fark
