Maybe we could just wait until the Word of the Day headline can actually come with a clever pun.

Or a wry reference to the news of the day.

These are hilarious.

They can't be gold EVERY day, but they're still great.

This is the reason I'm look at Fark 3-4 times a day.

When I was a kid my mom had a housekeeper who worked that Ironrite like Horowitz played a piano. Had a set of knee pedals she'd manipulate while deftly moving my father's dress shirts around- collars, cuffs, and everything with one hand, the other hand wielding a green glass bottle of starch solution. Truly an artist at work.

Here's the Farker's Digest version for those who haven't read it:

The machine he later came to know intimately: the HadleyWatson Model-6 Speed Ironer and Folder. A long and clumsy name. The people who worked here in the steam and the wet had a better name for it. The mangler.
...
As if the machine had tasted blood and found it liked it.
....
The machine was an abattoir now. The folder spat out pieces of shirt sleeve, scraps of flesh, a finger. Stanner gave a huge, whooping scream and Diment swung the axe up and brought it down in the laundry's shadowy lightlessness. Twice. Again.

Stanner fell away, unconscious and blue, blood jetting from the stump just below the shoulder. The mangler sucked what was left into itself. . . and shut down.
...

They got out and walked to the building, the sound of the mangler growing louder. As Hunton put the key into the lock of the service door, he thought that the machine did sound alive - as if it were breathing in great hot gasps and speaking to itself in hissing, sardonic whispers.
...
'The mangler killed Mark Jackson. It. . . it. . . oh God, it might get out! We can't let it get out! We can't. . we. oh -' He began to scream, a crazy, whooping sound that rose and fell in jagged cycles.
...
It was already out
