For those of you who wish that there was more after the Headline of the Year contest, here’s the weird news roundup. Here at Fark, we expect to see the weird news. The drunk guy that ends up covered in nacho cheese, the never-ending line of naked people and drunk people that amuse us. But there are some stories that are just so chock full of WTF that they get their own category. These are some of the best of those. Headlines that managed to capture some of the WTF of the original story. These are the weirdest ones of 2007. Enjoy

Trucker gets into traffic accident with another trucker. So naturally, he grabs a baseball bat and enters nearby liquor store, smashing everything in sight before suddenly deciding not to breathe anymore

Minister arrested. Maybe it was the open vodka bottle, or the pills. Maybe it was the sex act he offered the cops. Or maybe it was the way he peed in front of those kids at the car wash while wearing a skirt

Two hot Swedish teenage girls try to set fire to a porn shop. Then the police and fireman show up. Then the mailman and the MILF living upstairs. Yeah, right, she just HAPPENS to be a midget. This plot makes NO sense

Headline of the Year candidate: United States of America versus one man's watch. No joke. They convicted the dude. Now, they're suing his watch.

It's stupidity like this that makes me wonder how long will it be before our intellectual side of humanity dies out.
 
2007-12-31 3:35:47 PM  
Genius.. I choose them all
 
2007-12-31 3:38:13 PM  
I am going for all of the above. What is really scary is that all this shiat really happened.

Happy New Year's everyone.Let's see what 2008 will bring!

Dude, seriously. Nobody really sues a watch.

When there is a dispute in federal court about the ownership of property, it's called an "in rem" action and a description of the item in dispute is put in the caption of the lawsuit as the so-called "defendant," but it's not like the item of property is actually being sued. The actual defendant(s) would be anybody who claims to have an ownership interest in the item of property involved in the lawsuit. And this is nothing new--it's been done that way since, oh, about 1791.

As for the actual headline content, WRTFA, that made me LOL, is the two Swedish teenage gal's set fire to porn shop. The MILF midget part brought me to tears.

Midget's are the next best thing to children.

I'm voting for the dead dog sex. This may the last year it remains uncommon enough to rate a WTF.

Headline of the Year candidate: "The German performer accidentally stabbed himself at the Fairfield Halls show when his sphincter failed to open"


http://www.fark.com/cgi/comments.pl?IDLink=2575850


I think if you look at the pic of this German performer, you will clearly vote for this headline.

Nothing is funnier than German sphincters.

That's gold, Jurgen.

You'd think this problem could be stopped by just giving them each other's information.

Thank you for doing this Unfreakable, and have a happy new year.

I liked and wanted to vote for all of these, but that would be about the same as not voting for any. So I picked out a few that were not quite as good and voted for the rest.

I'd have voted for the streetlight thread over the rest too, but it pretty much deserves to be in a different legendary thread category with others like the ballsack conundrum and john fizgerald Page and the great crabcake robbery and drunken sex fiasco.
 
2007-12-31 4:14:24 PM  
My all time favorite was, "my scrotum is stuck in a lawn chair".

But I guess that is soo last year.

/funny how time slips away
 
2007-12-31 4:17:38 PM  
I liked them all, but I had to go with the obit simply because I love reading weird obits.
 
2007-12-31 4:21:02 PM  
Hmmm...none of them make me laugh, I could've submitted this with much better headlines.
 
2007-12-31 4:26:20 PM  
Dead Dog Sex by a mile. The original thread was probably the most entertaining read on Fark I ever caught unfolding.
 
2007-12-31 4:40:11 PM  
All these topics put in one place like this can cause an overdose
 
2007-12-31 4:40:36 PM  
I still find this to be the best story of the year: (w/actual headline)

Best opening sentence in article ever: "A jazz musician was injured Friday after jumping from a burning motor home driven by a one-time roller-skating stripper from Lodi"


Story is now unavailable unless you wanna pay, but you get the idea...

I didn't want to vote for any of those. Where's the clever wordplay?
