The Headlines

I read a lot of news articles and magazine articles.  Sometimes I am attracted to the articles solely on the basis of the name of the article or the headline.  Some are funny, some are titillating, some are sad, and some are just plain unfortunate. Here are a few I have come across: ( have not made any of these up)

These are from July 30, 2013:

Lady Gaga Flaunts Fresh Face, Brunette Hair and Nose Ring At New York Benefit – Huffington Po
 (her face was so fresh and the nose ring was just darling)
Victoria Beckham Smiles For The Second Time In Two Months – Huffington
 (you may be too serious when its news when you smile)
Scientists Create Teeth From  Urine–

Here is one from July 31, 2013 - Huffington
