CNN Headline News

posted by on September 25 at 15:59 PM

Banking on the sexiness of wearing the news, CNN is proudly promoting t-shirts emblazoned with headlines. Most of today’s headlines from CNN, of course, would make for dreadfully dull t-shirts. For instance, who wants to go popping around wearing “Senator calls economic meeting a distraction”? Not me. So they’ve picked the hilarious headlines like “Colors shifting on CNN electoral map.” Woo hoo. Instead, you should be allowed to pick out any headline you like for a customized t-shirt. Such as:





What t-shirt would you make?

I'd go with the health headline of "6 ways to save save money on drugs"

I can't imagine why or how this has gone on so long; I've seen the little t-shirt icons next to each headline for like 5 months now and they're all stuuuuppppid

They must have signed a horrible horrible accident of a contract

I'd have to go with "Please Keep Paying your Mortgage" myself.

Since when did CNN become The Onion? This is flippin' stranger.

Oh, here we go: "Soccer player tortured, slain"

A laugh riot!

I meant "strange." We're on the flippin' Stranger.

Dull? Not if they use e-ink and a headline updater app connected to your wireless phone. Your network-attached t-shirt would have the most current headlines possible. Dry clean only.

I blogged the same idea yesterday, and a few months back, too. Here are my recent faves:

--How Would You Spend $700B?

--Bald Chicken Wears Sweater

--Breast Milk Ice Cream

--63 Charged with Killing Boss Who Fired Them

In April you coulda gotten:

--National Snoring Week

--All Hail the King of Comedy Kung Fu

--Cops: Gangster video stars gun-waving granny

...and, best of all..

--One Word to Describe Your Mom

Can we get a petition going or something?

It wasn't CNN, but I always loved the one: "Rosie Slams Bush".
