Vintage Olympic - for puns

Post by Corporalhumblebucket on Wed 08 Aug 2012, 9:53 pm

Many of the best/worst newspaper headlines have been about Sir Chris Hoy. For example:

* "Hoy fives" Very Happy
* "Tears of Hoy" Erm
* "His Royal Hoyness" Very Happy
* "Medals Ahoy" censored

Anyone got any favourites or ones that are particularly dire.....?

The real McHoy

Of course the finest bit of newspaper coverage of the Olympics was today's first edition of the Daily Express, which managed to show a cover picture of the Netherlands dressage team rather than the GB team...

I know it's not a pun by I winced as the Chinese diver stepped up and they announced that Chink Ai was ready to dive. I couldn't believe my ears until I saw his name come up on the screen Qin Kai!!!

There's also a Taylor Made cycling headline for years to come if Trott wins lots of medals, eg

5 on the Trott.

I wanted to make the tenth post on this thread so that my pun would be the best. I sat down and worked my way through ten options and thought that at least one of them might come up trumps. Sadly, no pun intended.
