Happy New Year of Onion-esque headlines!
It’s been a while, so how about a short installment of “Headlines that should be from the Onion, but they’re not.”
“With Money at Risk, Hospitals Push Staff to Wash Hands.” –New York Times, 5/29/13
“Hobbits’ Size Not Likely Linked To Growth Disorders.” –New York Times, 7/15/13
“McDonald’s Can’t Figure Out How Its Workers Survive On Minimum Wage.” –The Atlantic, 7/16/13
“Tuition Aid From a Zombie Elf.” –New York Times, 9/8/13
“Ikea Spying Revelations Stir Outrage in France.” –New York Times, 12/16/13
“A Reluctant Bride Conquers Her Fears.” –New York Times, 12/30/13
“People who can still afford to live in New York praise Bloomberg.” –The New Yorker, 12/31/13
I have every faith that the coming year will continue to provide us with news that ought to be some kind of satire…but isn’t.
