    Some classic headlines:

    "Foot heads arms body" (As in Micheal Foot is in charge of an arms group.)

    "Holy Shiite tomb attacked"

    The headline of this one tickled me when it happened.

    Maybe it was the first iPod Nano...

    The Sun said:
    TELLY trickster Derren Brown today shatters the illusion he created for millions of viewers with the admission he is gay.

    He pretended to be straight?

    It's more the headline (hence in this thread) not that he's gay.

    More a "how the fuck do they get away with it" and a slight nod at the ingenuity of headline writers.

    Yeah, I'm sure I saw him shoving things into Robbie Williams ages ago.

    Oh yeah, I know. :)

    I'm just wondering why they think they've got this "scoop" when it's been known for a while.

    I just find it hilarious that they seem to insinuate he's let everyone down by coming out.

    The Yorkshire Post had a better headline for that one:

    Drunk Darth Vader spared jail after Jedi victim feels his force
