A picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes words with the picture add unintentional humor. Funny or Die user Oh, News! posts real examples from the news where the headlines add hilarity to a picture. Recently, Spokane’s own KREM 2 News was included in a great slideshow with this shot:
I get most of my news from NPR and the internet, while my husband prefers the TV. He cruises the twenty-four hour news channels. I get information overload from them because I can’t pay attention to both the scrolling captions and the story that’s being reported. In the end, I absorb neither and end up with a headache. Maybe I should start looking for funny caption/picture combinations instead and forget about trying to keep up with current events. It seems like a more productive way to watch.
Here’s another unintentional match posted by Oh News!.
What’s your favorite news source? How do you keep track of current events?
