But it must be short, accurate, decent, rhythmic, in good taste

So nothing like a Fark headline then.

"They're" and "their" in the same headline? Subby, you're gonna confuse the hell out of the average Farker.

Private Eye calls the paper The Grauniad because they used to make so many typos. I think it was the paper that ran any article containing the line "...but according to the Secretary General of the United Nations Buffy The Vampire Slayer...."

/It used to be practice for journalists to put in obviously preposterous placeholders for facts they were unsure about, so that they would be so obviously wrong that they'd be spotted before the article went to press in case they forgot to check and correct them. Occasionally they weren't spotted....

And I made a type on a comment criticising the Guardian for making typos....

Much as it pains me to give praise to a Murdoch organ, The Sun's headline about a football match between Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Celtic is one of the best of all time.

During the first Gulf War, the paper here ran a small filler item about their leader's spouse's shopping spree:
