Most. Ambiguous. Headline. Ever. Watch: I think the MTV News website has one guy who writes all the headlines, because all the headlines are similar in form and impossible to decipher unless you already know about the hot stars of the moment. I am abysmally ignorant of the hot stars of the moment, so I found the headline I saw today, "Lloyd Banks Ready To Make His Classic; Recalls Liver Shot, 50 At #1", a masterpiece of unexplained jargon and abbreviations. It brightened my whole day, thinking of things that headline could mean.
