Headlines that make you smile

I’ve always been a sucker for headlines that make sly references to pop culture.

The R-J’s Matthew Crowley has been a frequent winner in the headline category in the Nevada Press Association annual contest with twisted, winking and punful references, such as “Hazardous waists, Taming of the achoo, Wrappers’ delight.”

Today the Washington Examiner has come up with this chuckle-inducing headline: “Goodbye Rubio Tuesday?” Get it?

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you

    I think the phrase was on CBS Sunday Morning first…or was it last night on the CBS Evening News? Oh, just asked my wife, whose memory is better. It was last night…course, maybe they stole it…

  3. Matthew reminds me that I had a rule against puns that use people’s names. This one I might’ve given a pass.

  4. Winston Smith says:

    And he lost his home state, so apparently is saying goodbye…
