I was just perusing my stuff and came across a spoof I did.

I thought... That is my favourite headline that is.

Which is your favourite of your own?

This is my favourite headline...

Mine (so far) is; 'A Dog's Dinner 'Fit For A Queen'.
Both were well known expressions, and both fitted the content of the story. Praad of that I was/am!!!

Generally I try not to reveal too much to the reader with my story headlines (obviously means some visit points are lost). Hopefully those who do visit my stories then go away feeling glad that they did!

I enjoyed that:

A Dog's Dinner 'Fit For A Queen'


Very clever putting two well known expressions together.

"Generally I try not to reveal too much to the reader with my story headlines (obviously means some visit points are lost). Hopefully those who do visit my stories then go away feeling glad that they did!"

Well put. I try to do the same.

Some people write a title which includes the whole Spoof on a line. I hates that...

Lynton. If that bugger blows we are all dooooooomed. I will be most upset if it does on 23rd of December 2012 as I've got quite a lot I still fancy doing.

Not worth making a bet on it blowing - since it's one you might not collect.

If 42 is the answer, the question is if 24 looks in the mirror, who does she see?

Iain - the butter story was really great. It was really hard for me to read aloud though.


I don't know if I like the title so much....as the visual behind the idea...

Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

This one cheered me up a bit as I was picking up the tablets I'd dropped on the floor.

Prison as it should be!

I too liked Dead People Pay VAT..

Except wasn't there an extraordinary element of truth in it??

I seem to recall an recent Osborne idea...

I'm all for being dropped in the wheelie bin and put in landfill when I go.

I hate the fact that old people worry about how to pay for their funeral and join those things from dodgy adverts.

It's another rip off - the whole industry - which is what it is.

Osborne can swivel too. I really don't like him. there's smug and then there's smug. I'm just playing at it.

ps. I like all the articles so far if I missed a few, and Inches prison cell idea definitely needs looking into pronto.

Here here CJ!

I agree about the empleomaniac, fatuousness, hubri ridden, mythomanis, and quomodocunquising Minister, being a git!

Well said CJ

My favourite headline that I wrote was "My Dog ate someone else's bomb, says student rioter". I also liked Colonel Gadaffi's last words. And "Alien Brain Beetles found in Dead Banker's Brain"

But the one that other people seemed to like most was "Heston Blumenthal's Christmas Pudding Recipe Stolen". I'll never understand that one. Why was that Christmas pudding story so popular.
