New York Post No Better Than Weekly World News

Many years ago, The New York Post had arguably it's most tasteless headline, when reporting of a decapitated body discovered in a gentlemen's night club. HEADLESS BODY IN TOPLESS BAR.

Well, it took almost 30 years, but the now Rupert Murdoch owned Post has topped itself in the crassness department. On the heels of famed Spanish matador Julio Aparicio being gored in the throat, the Post thought it appropriate to lead with this front page. [Warning: Graphic Content]

ADDING... Don't get me wrong. I'm the first to go for the gallows humor, but the inclusion of the picture is a bit much. You never know what little kid is going to pass by a newsstand and flip out.

Is the Weekly World News still in print? I haven't been able to find it anywhere in Southern Cal. The most amusement you could get for a buck! Where else can you find out that Jesus and Elvis met aliens in a bar for a night of drinking???

Murdoch is showing his true colors now...amazing. But, sadly, not surprising.

The battle over whether iPhone or Android is better will never end, if only because Android users will never admit that they're absolutely wrong. Normally the conflict is merely verbal, but thanks to this entry from a video contest hosted by mobile game controller make MOGA this argument has gotten much more interesting.
