I'm a little sad the 'dead stars-Yoko' one wasn't in the main, that should be on the short list for Headline of the year, not Geek headline of the year.  That has definitely set the bar for the Geek tab...

I loved the Monty Python and the Holy Grail themed headline in Politics. I really LOLed when I read it.

The Tebow headline is funny, but marred by the use of "back-up" when "back up" is called for.
