Sometimes they don't think before they type...
There's two kinds of free press.

This is clearly the kind that's worth every penny.
I like it. You might get a job on one of them!
I'm already involved with the other kind.

It doesn't pay as well, but shaving is safer. (That whole "looking in a mirror while holding a razor" thing and all.)
I think the folks that wrote those headlines are kind of like the sewer that smells...
Was it so 30 or 40 yrs ago? As for our us, such manner came in last 20 years. Just to cry, just about the most simple and dirty things, to show the people, that they own dirty and empty life is normal. I prefer not to read newspapers, as it was recomended in "Dog's heart".

30-40 лет назад было так же? У нас дурацкая крикливая мода появилась и закрепилась лет 20 назад. Просто кричать обо всём самом простом и грязном, чтобы люди читали и видели: их грязная и пустая жизнь ничем не хуже жизни богатых и известных. Я предпочитаю не читать газет, как рекомендуется в "Собачьем сердце"
God be with the days of linotyping when every letter and word was so precious.
I do understand. My granny was a typesetter. :)
:) Thank you for the good laugh!
