My johnson can only wink. But he can wink for eight hours.

There's nothing like the journalistic greatness that comes out of local news sites.
2007-04-09 2:29:57 PM  
Makes perfect sense to me.
2007-04-09 2:31:13 PM  
But then, I'm old school Canada and I knew a guy named Joe Who?.
2007-04-09 2:36:13 PM  
Reminds me of that commercial with the tattooed guy. "Sorry Zach, you tiger now."
2007-04-09 2:42:29 PM  
Not bad, but it's no fbxrd.
2007-04-09 2:42:37 PM  
Tiger beaten by unknown Johnson
2007-04-09 4:00:31 PM  
Tiger and Johnson at Augusta. Tiger, his face black, his eyes red.
2007-04-09 5:05:42 PM  
2007-04-09 5:06:32 PM  
That's a perfectly cromulent headline.
2007-04-09 5:07:37 PM  
Zach and Tiger at Augusta

Tiger, when the walls fell. . .

Smitty misses a perfect opportunity for the tag.

A tiger?
2007-04-09 5:12:07 PM  
I can hardly stop laughing long enough to say what.

2007-04-09 5:12:12 PM  
That headline was the worst attempt at a haiku ever.
2007-04-09 5:12:18 PM  
Shaka..when the walls fell...

Tiger rests...
2007-04-09 5:12:37 PM  
Dumbasses. It's two lines.

"Zach Who? Steals Show"
"Johnson Doesn't Blink Despite Tiger"

Which, while not in line for a Pulitzer, isn't that bad, taken one at a time instead of mashed together like submitter did.
2007-04-09 5:12:57 PM  
I think I met the guy that wrote this headline at the bar this weekend. No idea what he was saying, but he sure did mean it.
2007-04-09 5:14:23 PM  
I think it's two separate headlines:

Zach who? steals show

Johnson doesn't blink despite Tiger.
2007-04-09 5:15:21 PM  
Yeah, what CrackedEgg said.
2007-04-09 5:15:55 PM  
At least "fbxrd" gave us a new term for "farked page." That one just made my head hurt.
2007-04-09 5:16:05 PM  
Steals Show Johnson is my favorite Native American blues musician.
2007-04-09 5:16:34 PM  
How many monkeys did it take to bang out that gem?
2007-04-09 5:16:43 PM makes sense if you use the proper capitalization and split it into two lines -- which the site did, but subby didn't.

Headline: Zack who? steals show
Subhead: Johnson doesn't blink despite Tiger

The subhead could have been more clever, but it works.

On a newspaper page the headline was probably much larger than the subhead. And they don't have the photo they used on the site. It probably helped too.

/this is lame
//there are plenty of headlines more deserving of the incoherent award
///i demand a recount
2007-04-09 5:19:12 PM  
I see CrackedEgg and PopeoftheFCOTB beat me to it.

2007-04-09 5:19:12 PM  
enc23 makes sense if you use the proper capitalization and split it into two lines -- which the site did, but subby didn't.

Not really. "Zack who? steals show" doesn't make sense no matter what you do to it.
2007-04-09 5:19:57 PM  
On a related note, I was pretty surprised to see Tiger rinse it on the fifteenth.

Good job, Zach.

Here's one:

Since Phil broke through a couple years ago, who is now the best golfer to have never won a major?

My vote is for Chris DeMarco. Top ten in the world, with 2nd place finishes in the Masters, PGA, and British Open.

/been jonesing for a good golf flame.
2007-04-09 5:21:34 PM  
Punctuation without her man is nothing.
2007-04-09 5:21:50 PM  
ACtually, three headlines:

Zach, who steals.

Show johnson doesn't blink.

Despite Tiger.

/now that's how a johnson oughtta act
2007-04-09 5:22:19 PM  
Having watched the last hour of the Masters, this headline was perfectly clear.

2007-04-09 5:25:05 PM  

Yes it does. They are playing off of the fact that no one knew who this guy was before he won the masters. Hence: Zach who?
(That's what I was saying when I heard he won.)

And he did steal the show. He won.

What doesn't make sense about it?
2007-04-09 5:25:08 PM  
"Zack who? steals show" doesn't make sense no matter what you do to it.

unless you. read it. as, William shatner.

Wow, the Darmok references made my eye twitch a little!

Nice job.

2007-04-09 5:28:01 PM  
The headline was even funnier when I read it in OpinionJournal's Best Of The Web Today earlier today.
2007-04-09 5:28:32 PM  
'Zack Who?' steals show

Is that better, Chinchillazilla?
2007-04-09 5:28:54 PM  
A thread refering to one of my favorite ST:TNG episodes.

/You crazy Farkers
2007-04-09 5:29:37 PM  
I'm sorry, but that's just fbxrd. I get what they're going for, but out of context it reads like nonsense.
Headlines ought to be straightforward.
2007-04-09 5:29:43 PM  
2007-04-09 5:33:12 PM  
Dude, I totally got a spam-mail like this the other day...
2007-04-09 5:39:30 PM  
Don't be alarmed it's just bad HTML, note the paragraph tag in the title bar.

I think it's suppose to look more like this story with the subheading:

Best Crawl of the tourny:

Woods 2 strokes behind Johnson.

heh heh heh heh, Beavis!
2007-04-09 6:21:46 PM  
AH, that explains it, the headline is not in English, it's in Golf.
2007-04-09 6:22:09 PM  
Some accessories make comprehension much easier.

"Zach Who?" steals show. Johnson doesn't blink, despite Tiger.
2007-04-09 6:22:25 PM

While I agree with you, I would also urge you to never pick up a copy of Variety. It's like another freakin' language.
