The Headline Game

Nancy has tagged me in the four-headlines game. Nancy has tackled the immediate issues, so I will have to go for the big picture:
Headline I most fear seeing in 2008: Archduke Shot; Titanic Sinks; Dopey Guy in Figleaf Accepts Gift of Apple from Wife

Headline I most want to see in 2008: Buce Showered with Riches, Fame, Power, Love of Beautiful Women

Headline I most expect to see in 2008: Buce Not Showered with Riches, Fame, Power, Love of Beautiful Women.

Headline I least expect to see in 2008: Dopey Guy in Figleaf Not Married at All; "Just Friends," Says Girl with Apple
Actually, I'm willing to skip fame and power. And riches are negotiable. Over to you, Crank, and Taxmom, and Skeptic, and IntLawGrrl.

Over to me? Why me? Why does everyone always pick on me?

Anyway, the headline I ache to see and never expect to is based on some advice I read in a journalism text book roughly half a century ago. It said that the most attention-getting news stories contained one or more of these subjects: Sex, Money, Murder Food and Nazis.

Which leads me inevitably to:

SS DROWNS NUDE HEIRESS
IN VAT OF CHOCOLATE
DURING NAZI SEX ORGY

Yeah, that'll be the day.
