I don't see what's so funny. I'm sick of the liberal media and their blatant pro-Frankenstein bias.

I like how these newspapers print photos with speech bubbles in them.

Not so many on covers. Lots of comics on covers though.

If you ever watch any old black and white movies, there is a sub-headline usually just below and to the left of the top headline, and it's kind of like the visual equivalent of the Wilhelm scream.

Ah, here it is... "New Petition Against Tax"

Also keep an eye out for "Building Code Under Fire"
