Here are your top-voted Headlines of the Week!  Thanks to TotalFarkers for voting and thanks as always to our fantastic submitters.  Fark loves all kinds of headlines, but to be truly Fark-worthy and Headline of the Week, we're looking for funny, creative, and unique twists.  Something you can tell your friends, family, co-workers, that 'hey, this is the story and this headline is what makes it Fark'.

Top-voted funny headlines make it to Headline of the Week, but we always have more each week that make us laugh or have a take on the story that is awesome and unique but don't always get the votes - News: Maria destroys Caribbean islands, strips them of vegetation. CNN: "US mainland not out of the woods yet" is one of the best this week that stands out.  So read on for the top-voted Headlines of the Week, and head over to the NotNewsletter for highlights of some extra headlines that deserve recognition.
