On The Frivilous Side: Spam News Stories

On occasion, I like to post something random and light-hearted. To sort of change the pace once in a while. Here's such a post.

You gotta love spam. What follows are a collection of real live spam e-mail titles I've received in my mailbox, excepting a bunch of obscene ones. Which one of them do you think would be the most unlikely news story?
  • "Barack Obama Wins Ku Klux Klan Endorsement"
  • "Bush And Putin Agree To Restart Cold War During G8 Summit"
  • "Attack Of The Zombie Negro: Dick Cheney"
  • "MLB players boycott All-Star game"
  • "Mccain Vows TO Replace Secret Service With His Own Bare Fists"
  • "Britney Spears And Michael Jackson To Write Parenting Book"
  • "Obama Comes Clean: "Im An Elitist, Ultra-Liberal.."
  • "Mccaine vows to remain celibate"
If I really had a lot of spare time, I'd probably write fake news reports for each one of these. The stories probably wouldn't be all that more wacky than some of what gets published in tabloids nowadays.
