    Why would they show a picture of his face instead of what's left of his foot.

    Speaking of pants, an actual headline I just read:

    Yoga pants may be key source of sea pollution

    Sometimes you get an unfortunate Headline/Photo mash-up...



    Other times you are just thankful the picture they picked was the one they went with...




    But others when the headline and picture are a perfect match...

    At least the headline wasn't "Oregon Man High On Meth Allegedly Beats Off 15 Cops While Masturbating"...

    I still have a photo from Dallas Morning News from years ago with the mayor surrounded by a number of smiling Dallas high society ladies........headlined with "Mayor's Ball Tasting"

    CBS4 in Indy just had a live report from the site of the new IKEA under construction here in Fishers.

    The angle?

    The large IKEA lettering might be installed on the side of the building sometime today.

    Oh, yeah, they also reported that a specific opening date has not yet been announced.

    I have a mother, 3 sisters, a Daughter-In-Law and a whole bucket of nieces that can't wait for the Fishers' IKEA to open. So most likely they all would be very interested in hearing that news.

    Okay, so I wouldn't say this wasn't newsworthy, but it does qualify as quirky.

    Family suffers minor injures after wild turkey hits SUV

    I won't post the photos here directly because they might bother some people. But the first photo is incredible.

    First photo looks like somebody threw their ceremonial headdress at somebody's windshield.

    But the title completely ignores the one that suffered massive injury.

    Now if Les Nessman had been spotted in the area... That would have really been newsworthy.

    Did not realize that Hipsters were that much into fishing.

    I find this all disconcerting.
    Wasn't Maynard G. Krebs a hipster?
