Don't you know not to feed the trolls?

It is extremely important for Americans to understand that Brits are in no way, shape or form more intelligent, sophisticated or decent than we are. The whole "old country accent-worship" thing is really disheartening. Ten years of having to hear American liberals saying, "But Tony Blair is just so articulate!" No he wasn't, he was a sociopathic quisling buffoon with a British accent.
I say this because the Daily Mail is basically the Weekly World News operated by Nazis, and unlike the non-fascist Weekly World News, it isn't out of print, it's wildly popular. It would never fly in the US, as bad as we are. Even Fox News has to be way more careful about hiding their agenda in the US.

I'm assuming it's "Headless Body Found in Topless Bar." But I could be wrong.

I'm pulling for the old classic "Small Medium At Large", but hedging my bets with "Dewey Defeats Truman".

Never link the Daily Mail. Every page view counts towards bolstering their advertising revenue. The best way to rid the world of their brand of hate-filled journalism is to make them less financially appealing to advertisers.

Win Free Sex
That headline never actually ran for a standalone story, but is widely regarded as the best possible English language headline.

And in an entirely unrelated note, a few years back I asked the Weekly World News (or at least one of their editors) for the right to use BatBoy's image for a non-commercial, non-profit, educational purpose and they were only too glad to provide it, so extra thumbs up for the WWN and the Mail can go jump in a lake.

I believe the implication is that the best headline of all time is "The second-best headline of all time".

As opposed to the current sense, which sadly now seems to be what you call anyone who disagrees with you in a comment thread.
