OH MY GOD!!!
Main hed on the page: NZ finds Black Cocks hard to swallow
Dek hed: Chinese not too keen, either
And I’m not making that up!!!!!
In a million years, I could never get away with writing a headline like that. The worst I ever did was “Devil gets stoned at Hajj ritual” and boy, didn’t I catch hell for that one … no pun intended. I also fuhkt up a headline on the OPED page talking about Timothy McVeigh’s execution. However, in the headline, where it was supposed to say “PUBLIC” execution, well, let’s just say that I accidentally left the “L” out of it. Yeah, my editor was trying to yell at me, but couldn’t stop laughing long enough to do so.
Interesting NZ stuff, though. Can’t wait until Craig gets back home so I can rib him about it.
