The Best/Worst Article Headline Ever Written

Really? This is either a journalist’s worst nightmare or an editor’s best prank, depending on how you look at it:

Stiff Dickey

After R.A. Dickey exited his start against the Chicago White Sox in Toronto with back and neck stiffness, the Jays were able to hold on to a victory. But still, there’s no way this headline wasn’t intentional. Or so I thought.

Upon digging for the original article, I found multiple links that informed me: “Oops. There’s something wrong with that link.”

Yeah, what was wrong is you failed to notice that R.A.’s last name sounds like the phallic slang for “Richard” and that the common understanding of “happy ending” is…well, I won’t go there. When you put the two together…I don’t need to help you with that. Just know that it’s commonplace in the sketchiest of massage parlors.

I don’t know what else to say, besides oh, Canada. We love you.
