The best ambiguous headline I’ve seen in a while

December 19, 2007

Title of an Associated Press story by Mary Pemberton on beluga whales: “Survey Shows More Cook Inlet Belugas.”

I love this headline for its shock value. I mean, who knew that there are enough whale-meat chefs out there to warrant a statistically meaningful survey of their cooking practices?

  1. good eye, greg…it's good to know that more inlet belugas are being cooked and, i assume, eaten. I've never tried inlet beluga, but I hear it tastes like a combination of snowy owl and baby seal.


  2. My favorite food headline was in a paper in Arizona a few years back:"What a Friend We Have In Cheeses"
