Stupid Headlines

I, like I am sure many of you, get so tired of all the stuff that get's forwarded to my email box. Seems like the same stuff just has made the rounds now for the 10 years I have been using the Internet. I very seldom forward anything, and if I do, I will usually copy and paste it so as to not send any viruses and to reduce the clutter. Truthfully, I don't open 95% of the forwards I receive, unless they are from family or very close friends.
Some have gotten mad at me for not forwarding or replying to those things, but I value my computer too much to open all that junk and run the risk of another virus.

Aside from all that, I received an email this morning from a friend I used to work with in Mt. Vernon, and it gave me a little chuckle to start the day, and I thought there may be others of you who could use a little humor too.

These are supposed to be actual headlines from newspapers from around the world.
I have no idea if they are real or not, but either way, they are funny.
Enjoy! (While you have a cup of coffee Neil)

Doesn't anyone proof read anymore ???

"As long as you live, you will not die!"
