The Northern Territory News (ntnews.com.au) has the best weird headlines, generally either crocodile-related or heavy on the sexual innuendo, sometimes both.

When I was a kid my dad taught special ed. I'll never forget the local paper's headline on a story about him taking his class to the Special Olympics - "Mentally retarded teacher shines at Special Olympics"

Good to see you here. It's been a while.

Can't get the image of innuendo related to sex with crocodiles out of my head. Crocodile Dundee gone horribly, horribly off the rails.

I didn't say it was innuendo about sex *with* crocodiles. Not even Territorians are crazy enough to have sex with crocodiles (unless, of course, they've got a willing partner.)

Old headlines from Facebook memories.

"Body Found In Charles River For 2nd Day In A Row"

Not sure if that’s two bodies or the same one found two days in a row.

Vampire killers stalk America

My all-time favorite. Wasn't sure if vampires were running amuck or being stalked.

What? Gav is not proclaiming how this makes Mexico's mass murderers better than American mass murderers? The tyrannic hellhole that is the USA keeps freedom loving monsters from pushing their victim's body parts around in a stroller. How despotic we are.

Man run over by lawn mower while trying to kill son with chainsaw
According to a Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office release, officers called to a home June 28 found Ferguson bleeding from his leg and head. A preliminary investigation indicated he had tried to attack his son with a running chain saw while he son mowed the yard.

Detectives say the father and son had an ongoing feud.

The cross? I hate to clue a few people in, but I believe Germany uses that cross, or one very much like it, on their military aircraft today. It's not a swastika. Fake news, I tells you.
