When headlines go bad part infinity. I know it's a crude crude joke to be making, but after all the election crap, I just can't help but laughing at the title "climax in court" coupled with the picture of that judge in his formal robe...

Okay, can we formally retire the "When Headlines Go Bad" meme now? This stopped being funny -- or even interesting -- about 2,500 headlines ago.

There is, after all a Salon thread for this.

Maybe a separate section, headlinesgobad.metafilter.com ... for those who enjoy. All right, a ghetto.

even better, let's retire the word 'meme'. (I don't care if it is perfectly usable, its been buzzworded.)

Speaking as the one who posted the first "When Headlines Go Bad" (though I never expected it to blossom into a MeFi tradition, or even for there to be a second post) ... I think they are a topic that's very MeFi appropriate: Pointing out the gigantic amounts of piss-poor writing and copyediting on the Web.
