Dylan Howard on a Few of His Favorite New York Post Things

Who doesn’t love a great New York Post front-page headline? If anything can keep newsprint rolling into the kiosks and vending boxes of a major American metropolis, it is the NYP’s flair for 48-point font shenanigans.

During our recent “So What Do You Do…” conversation with Celebuzz editor-in-chief Dylan Howard, this was an additional topic of conversation. For the record, here are three of Howard’s all-time favorites:

When it was discovered that Osama bin Laden had pornography in his secret lair, the Post declared “OSAMA BIN WANKIN.” The sub header was just as good: “IT’S WHORA BORA – PORN FOUND IN LADEN’S FOXHOLE.”

“CRAZY STOX LIKE A HOOKER’S DRAWERS… UP, DOWN, UP” was another for an item about stock market turmoil. They had a shot of a woman portraying a prostitute, exhaling cigarette smoke.

Finally, using a Photoshopped image of a beaten up Tiger Woods alongside his long suffering wife Elin, the Post noted that Tiger had admitted, “I’M A CHEETAH.” [Ed's note: Well before pretty much every stand-up comic in the country.]

Note that all of these headlines are not search engine optimized!

Amen to that.
