It's time for a new game on this forum - and I dub this one "The Headline Game". The rules are very simple:
Take a recent headline from a real news source. Add a snide/humorous remark to it. And that's all there is to it!

Here be examples:

Ivanovic follows Federer's lead to fly solo (Guardian Unlimited)
Forgets to zip it up afterwards.

Cheney to have heart defibrillator replaced (ABC News)
Doctors baffled: Cheney has a heart?

US Senate deals blow to immigration bill (Sydney Morning Herald)
Immigration Bill snitches to DEA.



See, it's both fun and easy. Get to it! :)
