When making good headlines - have a thesaurus at hand. MMk?
The end of headlines as we know it.
There are only so many words in the English language. There are only so many puns to make. Eventually, we'll all recycle. Don't you think? Oh, spill your theory too. (*nag nag*) Hit that comment button baybeh!

Maybe they should give up the punny headlines over at Apple? They aint punny, I mean, funny. Gaah. That was unintentional. Honest!
