Don’t get me wrong: I love The Huffington Post. It’s the first place I go to in the morning for my news. And I worship Arianna Huffington. I want to BE Arianna Huffington. But let’s be real. Some of those headlines. I mean. REALLY. I think today’s “Brooklyn Decker Remembers The First Time She Shaved Her Legs” just might be THEIR MOST WTF HEADLINE EVER. I love it for it’s utter pointlessness and willful vapidity. It’s what I imagine ALL headlines will be like in a couple years. Anyway, I’ve been collecting HuffPos most hackneyed headlines in a folder on my desktop for a while now. I thought I’d share them with you. See if you agree. More after the jump.
Mind you, I’m not saying The Wow Report is any better. God KNOWS, we revel in banality as well. (And by “we” I mean mostly “I.”) I’m just pointing out, though, that for a serious news organization, they can be pretty ridiculous.
