Just scanning a newspapers headlines and you know right off the bat that the story is gonna be horrible. Certain words or phrases are just NEVER in feel good stories.
1. Torso (always a horrible story if this word is in the headline)
2. Ex-Catholic Priest
3. Single engine plane (They just don't put that in the headline if the story is good...they just don't)
4. Shallow grave. (never, ever good)
5. Margot Kidder
6. Ceasefire (that usually means they'll start even more shooting in about an hour )
7. Mine shaft.
9. Dr. Menegele
10. West Virginia
You get the idea. So for today's fun we can do one of two things: Either think up other words that AIN'T good in a headline, or use these in a headline sentence that would be a feel good story. Remember...headlines, not the story.
