What's the last headline you ever thought you'd read?

Katie Holmes Wins Oscar? L. A. Jury Finds Celebrity Killer Guilty? Grateful Nation Thanks President Bush?

Well, I'm thinking this has to be in the Top Ten, from today's Guardian:



A giant inflatable dog turd created by the American artist Paul McCarthy was blown from its moorings at a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a window before landing in the grounds of a children's home.

If ever a story required pictures, this is it, but unfortunately they offer none. Here's an artist's conception of the devastation.



Okay, so I'm not much of an artist. My sympathies are with the people of Switzerland, who must be fondly looking back on the days when they just had to wipe off their shoes.

I find it interesting that the story of the Giant Dog Turd appears right next to the one about Ann Coulter, yet no one has ever seen Ms. Coulter and the Giant Turd at the same time. Coincidence? I think NOT!

Very good, Steve! I think you've cracked a mystery here.

Ho-HO-kus!
