I m not expecting this to gather any momentum but in my news feed this morning was the headline Trump Tower quickly followed by Wind relief
Have any other headlines made you laugh ?

Not a headline but I recently read that Roman men could get special dispensation from Emperor Claudius
to fart during meals.

The source is Suetonius but he only said Claudius considered it but I like to think it was one of his many, many edicts.

No dispensation for women of course.

I have heard that during WW2 a newspaper (variously the Times, Guardian or Daily Mail) printed the headline:
'Allies push bottles up Germans'.

Probably apocryphal but amusing and a salutary lesson on the importance of the comma.
