Silly Season Headlines

paperboy 21 December 2009 17

It’s the silly season. Half the town is already on holidays and the other half wish they could join them.

So for something a little different let’s see some headlines you’d like to see in 2010. Keep them to around 10 words, and let your creativity do the rest.

Here are some (lame?) examples to get you going:-

He’s Back – Fireworks as John Hargreaves becomes Chief Minister.

Love In – Canberra cyclists and motorists sign a peace deal.

Housing Crisis – Gungahlin declared a slum (Gungahlin Al outraged)

Raiders win 3-in-a-row – Pity about the other 14!
