England is the country of Shakespeare, Dickens and Churchill, but for my money, the nation's greatest wordsmiths are the copy editors who write the headlines for London's tabloids.
Consider this provocative cover from The Sun, the paper that famously printed the photos of Saddam Hussein in his underwear this spring. Hussein's lawyers, apparently, are threatening to sue The Sun over those photos, prompting the paper to run yet another front page photo of Saddam in his tighty whities with this headline:
"As Saddam Instructs His Lawyers To Sue The SUN Over Those Pants, We say
"YOU AND WHOSE ARMY?
Oops, you haven't got one)"
As if that isn't enough to get you to throw down 50 cents for the paper, there was this enticing teaser in the top right corner.
"Who Shared Di's Bed on Divorce Day?"
Top that, Shakespeare.
