UNINTENDED HEADLINE HUMOUR | Kuwait Times



From October 2 of last year: 


Count the ways in which the main headline, below, is funny.  


Hint: each part of speech is analogous to at least one.

 I'll get you started:




 It was meant specifically for Michael Rivero.


The quote marks are single quote marks.


The quote marks could go around other words in the headline to great effect.  Try it.


Try them around the second half of the name of the publication.


Why the quotes are around the 'worried' #1: He's dead.


Why the quotes are around the 'worried' #2: If not, he's probably got faulty information.


Why the quotes are around the 'worried' #3: If not, he's probably got better things to worry about.


Why the quotes are around the 'worried' #4: If not, he's probably happier since he switched publishers.


Why the quotes are around the 'worried' #5: If not, see #1...






Please post ideas in comments...




oh and hhh/t (hell of huge hat tip) to Corporanon, again.
