Death by Pancake

Oh, Google homepage, how your feeds of CNN's top stories never fail to grab my attention, especially when they link pancakes with death.


I mean, you'd click this, right? Especially if you just finished a day of air travel?

The full story, however, is quite sad and packaged under the considerably less breakfasty headline "Ohio plane crash kills 6."

  1. At cnn.com itself, you can buy t-shirts with the funnier headlines printed on them. Next to the headlines, there's a little t-shirt icon to click on and everything.

    It's sort of comi-tragic, that news is reducing itself to this sort of thing.

  2. Seriously? That is pathetic. Though I suppose there is an art to a sensational, grabby headline, I don't want to wear them on my chest.

    Nor do I want to wear those asinine "Anderson Cooper, you're not my boo" t-shirt.
