Headlines, Schmedlines


The best thing about rags like the New York Post is, without a doubt, their headlines. The puns! The witticisms! The terrible, terrible jokes. New site Schmedlines capitalizes on this, challenging readers to come up with the best (/worst, most groan-tastic) headlines for real news stories, every day. You can become a top Schmeditor on the site by crafting winning schmedlines and in turn voting for others.

Since we’ve consistently found Flavorwire readers to be a particularly droll lot, we figured y’all were shoo-ins in this Schmedlines racket. That’s why, all this week, we’re running a little contest over there, to see what you guys can come up with in the way of rewriting cultural-news headlines. Every day, you’ll find one post with a Flavorwire flag. Share your comedic genius, and at the end of the week, we’ll post our favorites and declare a winner, who’ll receive a very special holiday treat from us. Get going, schwannabes. Those schmedlines won’t write themselves!
