On the whole, newspapers tend to be fairly serious. Unfortunately, the kinds of important current events that need to be reported are often tragic or upsetting. But, despite this, every now and then you’ll spot a hilarious headline in a newspaper.

At times, it’s because the story is a strange one, and the headline can’t help but be funny due to the absurdity of the subject matter.
