Why Print Cannot Die: The Funniest Newspaper Articles

Urlesque blog has a tribute of the funniest scanned print ads and newspaper articles that have been floating 'round the web. They're oldies but goodies!


From the Upcoming ueue, submitted by interweber.

The Condom Truck one is from the Toronto Sun - dumbed down news for people who don't like too much analysis or critical thinking in the morning.

I point this out because I don't want people thinking that this headline was a mistake; it's fairly typical fare from the headline editors at the Toronto Sun. I don't read the Sun, but if I come across a copy in a coffee shop, I sometimes scan their headlines because they're like this!

I've often thought that they like to slip in these little word plays just so they can have fun wondering whether or not it's going to go right over their reader's heads. Another thing they like to do; have a big colour front page picture and a giant attention-grabbing front page headline that have nothing to do with each other, but are funny in juxtaposition.

It's always fun to check out the Sun boxes as I walk by and see what kind of twisted meaning they have created by mashing up unrelated words and images.
