I enjoy clever or unintentionally funny newspaper headlines. Stephen Fry pointed out a couple on his Twitter page so here they are, plus a few favourites of my own.

No surprise that Stephen likes this one. It reminds me of the famous cricket commentary “The batsman’s Holding the bowler’s Willey”.

The Sun, 2000
Amanda Holt had too much to drink in business class on an American Airlines flight from Dallas to Manchester. A fellow passenger, David Machin, (who was a complete stranger) and Amanda, had a sexual encounter in front of outraged passengers and staff. They were both fined at Manchester Crown Court and lost their jobs. Quite a sad story but a great headline. How come I never sit next to anyone like that?
