Best blogpost headline ever?

The indefatigable Glenn Reynolds in his Instapundit blog  has what I think may be the best blogpost headline ever: TOPLESS WOMEN PROTEST HEADLESS CHURCH. It’s on a link to a TVNZ story with a tamer headline–Topless women protest outside Vatican–illustrated with a picture of  very much untopless nun sitting in the St. Peter’s colonnade. The article rather primly notes, “The identity of the women taking part in the protest was not immediately clear.”

Readers of a certain vintage will recognize that Glenn’s headline is a variation on the http://www.capitalnewyork.com/article/media/2012/01/5137028/real-story-headless-body-topless-bar-argued-veterans-post famous April 1983 New York Post headline, “HEADLESS BODY IN TOPLESS BAR.”
