    That’s FARKalicious. …was it printed on a Saturday?

    I remember when I was at University of Nebraska where they have a free daily newspaper that’s read by like half the state. It seemed like every headline had a comma in it. “State police crack down on speeding, safety belts” “Rabbits, ducks in season”. I wanted to beat them with a headline-writing course.

    I have no idea what day it was printed, but it was a hard news story.

    What I like about it especially is that the puns keep on going throughout the story, and catch you very much off-guard…every. single. time.
