It is time once again for:


This week’s stupid headlines and my stupider sophomoric and sometimes offensive comments

Do inmates have any balls?...Oh yeah, right. 


Minor league ballpark to add urinal gaming – Ewww!  If you win you lose.  Look out; he’s going to cash out!! Or is it called piss off?

This one I caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this. It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!! They put in a correction the next day.

  1. You (and Marty) really hit a home run this week!

    Yeah, who cares what color dinosaur feathers are when there are REALLY important things to worry about, like the mating habits of Bolivian frogs under a full moon in April. We can't let all that government research money go begging!


  2. Those are hilarious. I think sub-editors really have fun with those sometimes. Too bad all this is being lost with the dull, SEO-bait headlines more commonly seen now!

  3. some funny; some just plain sad...

  4. This makes me want to write my own headline: Intruder Apprehended in Church as Police Catch Him by the Organ.

  5. I''m laughing, I'm crying, I'm so grateful.
    Thanks, Joe. I really need this today.

  6. As a fellow Cranky Man, I love your blog and I feel I have a connection to it. I started following. Keep up the good work.

  7. Wow, that Panda vet really took one for the team, didn't he.

  8. Love these proofreading gems. I live in Oregon so maybe I better check my neighbors backyard. Maybe he's the reason I'm so hungry all the time.


I love comments, especially some of my commenters are funny as heck!

Oh, and don't be shy, Never miss a Cranky Post.
