Beattie’s Law of Newspaper Headlines

If you’re from Queensland you might immediately associate this headline with former Premier Peter Beattie. Don’t. It has nothing to do with him. If it did, the law would read: “Be in them as many times as possible.” This one is cooler:

“If there’s a question mark in the headline the answer is either (tabloid) “no” or (broadsheet) “who cares?”

Think about it. It’s true. Isn’t it.
