None of the headlines got a smile let alone a chuckle from me. Seems like a weak week for headlines.

I giggled at "autistic differences"

Maybe have voting enabled in these threads for best headlines of the week...and then by the end of the year you already have only a handful of the finalists ready for a Headline Of The Year vote.

When I see the HOTY threads in December there are too many to go through.

I lol'd at the Monkeys, but I guess you have to be a certain age (i.e. too old to say LOL)

Not really.

The second wave of Monkees popularity began when MTV aired the entire series in 1985, which is within the usual FARK demographic. And sliding down the scale a bit, people like me who will soon be facing their 30s would have been introduced to them when Nick at Nite aired 5 weeks of Monkee Mondays in 1997.

In other news, are featured partners blocking comments on purpose? (see thread below this one) Or is it just me who doesn't see any way to add a comment there?

I dunno, I thought a few were quite funny.

Always good to make fun of Best Korea, Blackberry, and Ticketbastard.
