Good News Sandwich

There is only one thing in the world more casually pleasing than a slightly amusing headline on a newspaper sandwich board, and that is two slightly amusing headlines on a newspaper sandwich board.

In Brighton on Saturday afternoon, I was tickled by this:

Then I noticed the headline on the other side and I was tickled afresh:

Compare that second headline to this one in London...

Aaaah, sleepy old Brighton.

I love comedy newsstands. A few years ago, a friend reported to me that he'd seen one reading 'KRANKIE IN BEANSTALK PLUNGE HORROR'.

I also liked 'WORLD READY TO ROCK' on the day of Live8.

Be fair, women don't have testicles.

I wish I could prove it with a link to the news article, but the best headline I ever saw was at a newsagent in Muswell Hill on November 1st, which read:'Boy, 12, survives pumpkin attack'. I have a photo somewhere, tucked away, but no scanner, unfortunately. Still, classic.

There is nothing funny about Poohaven.

Some aquaintances were in their local paper a few years ago. Their Med Cruise was cancelled over some fisheries fisticuffs. The headline announced they were "Tuna victims".

Nice to see you back, also.

Poo blockage is always a vary bad thing.

These signs are great...i must take the fact that we don't have any in my city up with our Mayor.
