"Canada farm's human remains alert"

Could be the most unparseable headline I've ever read; I had to read it about 5 times to make it make sense.

(It's actually rather a gruesome story)

's true - it even beats my favourite, "Cabinet Pay To Be Squeezed". :)

As for the story, wow. Um, wow.


Headline Noun Overuse Shock!

For sheer quality, it's still not going to beat the NY Post's famous "Headless Body In Topless Bar", or the apocryphal report on the collapse of Axis resistance in Tobruk under pressure from an Allied advance, "Eighth Army Thrust Bottles Up Germans".
