Welcome to the Headline of the Year contest for 2012! These are ordered alphabetically, so be sure to read all the way through before deciding which headlines are worthy of the title of Headline of the Year. Also, the other contests (subtabs, context headlines, etc) are still coming up and the voting threads for those will be on Monday so remember to come back for those.

This is fun for us to vote on, but the credit goes to the many submitters that are the only reason we can have this contest every year. You are some funny, funny people. Well done.

Okay, enough with the talk. Without further ado, this is your 2012 Headline of the Year contest.
