25 newspaper headlines that made it to the headlines for all the wrong reasons

Everyone has a bad day, including the guy at the desk, right?

Some of the kids these days may miss out on the age-old tradition of starting the day with a hot cup of tea and reading the newspaper, cover to cover. For those who still do it, there may be some whacky headlines that pop up every now and then, which make you spew your tea all over the page. Some headlines can be so silly without meaning to be, some are just a waste of spacing for stating the oh-so-obvious, and some are so ridiculous that you wonder what the writers were even thinking at the time (or if they were thinking at all). Here's a roundup of some of the most amusing headlines and we suggest you don't read them whilst drinking a hot beverage.
