Long Headlines for Wordy Wednesday

All over the Internet, blogs celebrate Wordless Wednesday by posting images instead of writing.  As a writers blog, we must protest.  And what better way to protest than to post an image of what just might be the longest headline in a mainstream newspaper?

 

 

The version above was shared by Amy Vernon, and is pretty long and humorous.  But after it was captured and shared it on social media, the headline was altered, adding a word and replacing three words with longer ones, making the following headline even longer…

 

 

Can long headlines work?  I would say this is an example of when they can. A long, startling headline with plenty of words.

These pictures might not be worth a thousand words, but for Wordless Wednesday they’ll do.

 

RECOMMENDED: Wordy Wednesday – Hagrid moonlights

  1. That’s so amusing! It’s amazing what you can get away with now that so much news is online. When I worked on a print newspaper, headline space was scarce!
