The Headline Game

Real life or parody? Sometimes, I can’t tell the difference anymore.

Each week, I’ll post two headlines from CNN and two headlines from The Onion. Can you spot which are the real headlines and which are the fakes?

The game can often bring to light the absurdities of our modern world. Was an actual CNN headline too outlandish to be believed? Did a satire piece hit the nail right on the head?

Feel free to use the comments thread to discuss any aspect of the four stories from that week’s game, but particularly the headlines you got wrong, and why. It may lead to some interesting discussions about the current state of affairs.
