Christine O’Donnell’s Masturbation Stance

Of course it’s time to let Christine O’Donnell’s political career rest in peace. I’m not picking on her. It’s just that my new November-December of the esteemed Columbia Journalism Review arrived yesterday and with a new batch of messed-up headlines and accidental double entendres in CJR’s regular end-of-the-book feature called “The Lower Case.” Here are a few of the real live headlines:

Efforts Meant to Help Workers Batter South Africa’s Poor

Beating Death Becomes Rallying Cry in Egypt

Butts Arrested in Boob Murder Case

Schools: Abstinence still focus, parents can opt out

Baseball Notes: Rangers’ Hamilton to get shot for sore knee

    Unless they’ve changed it, the “c” in “The Lower Case” should be lower case.

    Reminds me of the legendary headline we always heard about in northwest Minnesota (and very possibly apocryphal):

    “Fertile Woman Dies in Climax”

    Arms slightly akimbo, perhaps?
