"Marijuana issue sent to joint committee" is kind of an awesome headline.

To be fair, this could be Welsh...

My mom loved that bit. I am certain he mentioned several of these same ones.

When I was a teenager my church had a stack of "Good News Tucson" christian newspapers in the foyer. The leading headline was on an article about an increase in meth usage in the area. So the front of the paper said

Good News Tucson

And then had a picture of a skull. That's all that was visible above the fold.

Yes, we made fun of it a lot.

I think National Lampoon was printing "True Headlines" before Leon started reading them; back to the early part of the '80s.

Anyway, my favorite was in The Oregonian in the '90s, a little filler piece about how Mrs Hussein went on a shopping spree...

This looks to be from Private Eye, taking the piss out of the UK papers' coverage of Diana's death.
