    I read once that the greatest headline ever written was

    “Sex Slayer Bares Lover Diary”

    Bill R: That’s a good one. A lot of people like Headless Body in Topless Bar. Not every word has punch, but the whole effect is good.

  4. Bill R Says:

    A classic! That would be hard to, er, top.

  5. Matt McKeon Says:

    My candidate for best headline:
    After the IRA blew up a statue of Admiral Nelson in the Irish capitol:
    British Admiral Leaves Dublin By Air.

  6. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Matt: LOL.
