Perhaps not 7Days' most tactful headline yet...

I never knew vitamins COULD fall down dead.

ts, it's in the paper, it must be true. Vitamins are obviously living creatures.

An appalling headline, a stupidity in a couple of lines of copy, which takes me back to what I've been saying ad nauseum to people publishing this garbage - stop making fools of yourselves and employ a proof reader!

Why do they have to come up with bad puns for every heading?

Grumpy Goat said...

It's not just 7DAYS whose writers love execrable puns. We can perhaps forgive the UK tabloid dailies, but check out the Middle East Economic Digest, MEED for some atrocious puns.

Perhaps if your job is writing serious stuff all day you have to get your jollies somewhere.

I used to love playing "whoopsie" with 7 Days: seeing how bad the big photo, with its teeny caption leading to a story, and the main headline with the head story, clashed with one another. I can't remember any specific examples, but there were some really bad ones.

Then they stopped : (
