The Star’s Most Viewed story today is “Superman found dead, hours after leaving jail“. Curious, I clicked on the link and realised it’s only a report about the death of a man named Super-man Awang. Oh, I see the humour. Ha ha ha. It’s a story of a dead person for goodness’ sake. What’s more worthy of the headline, his unfortunate name or the fact that he was killed by two slashes to the chest?
Remember “People just Khan believe it!” a few days ago? What was the sub-editor aiming for? A pun? It’s not even funny. Lame puns in a serious newspaper is just pathetic.
Why can’t we just have boring headline that tells it as it is?
