Ultimate British tabloid headline

Alex Balk spotted the best Daily Mail headline in recent memory: "Love-rat dad of nine children to eight women who headbutted ex-girlfriend in row over cheese toastie jailed for just 20 days."


  1. I remember the ultimate tabloid headline as being: ‘Pop star in sex change mercy dash to palace’

    1. I’d say this is more of a “shake your head and tut at the human trash” kind of story.  For a good, apoplectic asylum-seeker headline, you’d ideally want them to be “jumping the NHS queue in front of a cancer-filled 6 year daughter of a war hero.”

    2. Nearly.  He really needs to be a lesbian as well.

      The embedded “more tittle tattle and brain-drying silliness” box has as the top article “Lesbian basketball star ‘who tried to blow up ex-girlfriend’s car’ released on $100,000 bail on condition she wears an ankle tag”

  2. Not that I expect anything less from the Daily Fail, but the article actually contradicts its own headline and says he got 20 weeks rather than 20 days. Sadly, though, I’m more inclined to guess that the 20 weeks is the typo…
