All-Time Great Headlines, Part VXII
The headline? "Backe Talks About The Minutes He Spent Behind Bars."
And you thought Papillon was a searing prison story.
Why the hell couldn't this KHOU piece be a six-part series? We're thinking maybe each segment devoted to, say, three of the "minutes he spent behinf bars."
Really, is there a less grabbing headline they could have used?
"Local Man Talks Of Mild Annoyance."
"Woman Delayed For 8 Seconds By Slow-Moving Pedestrian."
"Cell Phone Keeps Cutting Out During Semi-Important Call, Resident Claims."
To be sure, it sucks to be arrested, especially if it turns out to be a wrongful arrest. But "Minutes Behind Bars!!" is not going to be a made-for-TV-movie anytime soon, dudes.
