Funny headline

In a subheadline on a story today in the Freeport Journal Standard, we get this news: "Large turnout turns out for event."

In another example of peculiar wording, our local TV news shops are inclined on occasion to report that some motorist was killed "after" the accident rather than "in" it.

My all-time favorite was the local TV anchorwoman who referred to a man having been "shot to death repeatedly on his front porch."
