I have just read a sub headline that has made me roar with laughter. 'Good neighbour Jason Donovan battles fire in his underpants'.
Any other exciting headlines that have made you laugh? I am feeling a bit silly today for some reason and wondered if anyone might care to join me.

Poor Jason - but lucky us, having an opportunity to view JD in his pants. He's not looking too shabby at all! <shallow>

This story didn't make me laugh as such, it just warmed the cockles of my heart (although the photo of the farmer's legs sticking up in the air was v funny!)

Ignore me - I've just noticed you're looking for headlines, sorry!

I have nothing sad

Oh thank you for a laugh! ???????(two laughs)
Having peaked into GN after being away,(moans about Meghan, moans about the MOS , beefs about Boris and somebody going crackers over plastic tat at Christmas) - this is a breath of fresh air!

Yes, it’s a funny headline ?you can’t tell me that it’s not done on purpose though.

Please don't accuse me of sick humour or insensitivity, but I had to laugh at this snippet from BBC radio news a while back: ".....but the device failed to explode - it is believed to have been the work of an inexperienced suicide bomber."

A while ago but...
‘Delegates failed to pass a motion’
I always wonder if Senokot would have helped.
I had to leave a conference room once when they started passing motions, despite trying my hardest I always end up in hysterics.

Asked whether Donovan would get a commendation for being a good neighbour, Wolfe (fire officer) quipped: “He looks good for his age.”

This made me laugh:
Police warn people not to mock wanted drug dealer's hair as they comb the area
You must see the story, and the hair!

Oh dear! It would be difficult to contain yourself.
