    Quill is the magazine for the Society of Professional Journalists. This month's issue gave some great examples of headlines. Author Paula LaRocque discussed the effective use of double entendres.

    She gave these hilarious examples:

    1. "President wins on budget, but more lies ahead"
    2. "New vaccine may contain rabies"
    3. "Never withhold herpes from a loved one"
    4. "New study of obesity looks for larger group"
    5. "Teacher strikes idle kids"
    6. "Clubs help women cope with money problems"
    7. "Police begin campaign to run down jaywalkers"
    8. "Fish pedicure banned in Fla."
    9. "Six children charged with battery on bus"
    10. "Lung cancer in women mushrooms"
    11. "Man shoots neighbor with machete"
    12. "Body discovered in Plainfield cemetary"
    13. "Sunday's plane accident is pilot's 2nd"

    Hope many of you find this useful!

    Excellent find, Corwin. We surely find this very very useful. I guess double entendres can be very well used in blog headings or, simply, in all types of portals.

    For those who don't know its meaning: Double Entendres is a word or phrase having double meanings.

    Sorry, that should read:

    "Sunday's plane accident is pilot's 2nd fatal accident"

    Oh, 11-13 are real headlines!

    I like your style...and your motto, namely, "I only post ideas that work." That could be a headline in the making:)

    Thanks a million for your generous sharing of a very meaty post. These are killer ideas and definitely provide a solid foundation to start the ball rolling.
