N is for Newspapers (and their fantastic headlines!)

Good God, not exhaustion! 
For someone (like myself) who gets most of their news and goings-on information from the Internet, it might come as a surprise to you that one of the biggest pleasures of traveling around the UK, specifically train travel, was getting my hot little hands on a Metro newspaper. 

And that's because, after living in the UK for a while, I'm still not sure if the editors of newspapers--everything from major publications to local village newsletters--are oblivious, or have achieved troll level: master.  

This is news, apparently.

For those unfamiliar, though there are perfectly normal headlines and articles in UK newspapers, a good percentage of them are, well, ridiculous. And I thought I'd share some of them with you. 

Don't miss the part where it said she was
"dis-custard" after not being able to find any...
Thanks to the Internet and my inability to remember any of the ones I saw in particular, I'm going to lazily link to an awesome Buzzfeed article that was exactly what I'm looking for. Any pics in this post are from that piece of awesomeness, and click the link above to see more. 

Enjoy the puns and silly headlines, and see you for O! I promise you won't want to miss it!

  1. I'm just an A to Z-er passing through. Good luck with the rest of the Challenge.

  2. Oh no. Tell me it isn't so. Someone is having a custard shortage and there is an ongoing investigation into the injury to a dog's nose. Your post made me laugh. I just stopped by from the challege to say hello. Thanks for the smile .

    1. I know! What a tragedy, haha! I'm so happy you enjoyed it!
