    I just love these every time I see them. My favorite (which doesn't appear on your list) is POLICE HELP DOG BITE VICTIM.

    There is a man by the name of Richard Lederer who wrote a couple of Books called "Anguished English". The content of the books is a collection of "butcherisms" and other assorted English language goofs. Headlines have an entire section, but my favorite is the one about World History with each sentence taken from essays written by school children. My favorite sentence from this has to be "Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100 foot clipper." I highly recommend it for a laugh or three.
