The FT Morphs into the Onion
An actual headline in the Financial Times:
Readers are hereby encouraged to suggest the subhead that would do the best job at providing a concrete example buttressing that headline. My suggestion: "Proposes International No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em tournament to Allocate Agricultural Subsidies."
[Does the FT provide any evidence of flair?--ed. According to John Authers:
Unlike many other Mexican technocrats, Mr Gurría also has great personal skills and should be a flamboyant leader for the OECD. He also has links with the European media as a former director of Recoletos in Spain.[Zzzzzzz--ed. Yeah, I know. Flair might have been the wrong word choice here.] posted by Dan on 11.28.05 at 03:21 PM

Are your sure the FT headline said "flair" and not "Flair?" Because the subhead could read, "Veteran Wrestler to Leave WWE, Work For Global Prosperity. WOOO!"
No, I didn't read the story. Do I have to?posted by: Zathras on 11.28.05 at 03:21 PM [permalink]
Or, if it was "Flair":

Isn't it a little unfair to snipe at him for becoming foreign secretary and treasury secretary "without ever having to stand for election"???
