Dumbest headline ever

    Whoever wrote this is a moron. Not sure where it originally came from. The rest of the copycats who added it to their news sites without writing a better headline are even bigger dummies:

    Fla. Woman Struggles After Losing 4 Limbs

    SP, if it came through AP, that headline was automatically put up on a number of sites. Those are automated feeds and the headlines on many sites aren't edited. So you get one bad one, you'll see it all over the place.

    I really hoped that the story was going to be about a damaged tree, truly making it the "dumbest headline ever."

    Bad, but not the worst. Not quite in the same league as:

    "Police raid gun shop, find weapons"

    "Patients to sue seven foot doctors"

    "Transvestite charged with male fraud"

    "Scientists discover crack in Uranus"

    "Precinct toilet stolen: cops have nothing to go on"

    Nope. "Roasted Nuts" is still the worst.

    This is just a bunch of limbed people judging limbless people as having it harder in life.

    Let he who is without sin nudge the first stone with his shoulder.
