Just a little blast from the past here from my days living in NYC. When I lived in the Big Apple, there was nothing like seeing the bizarre and often tasteless tabloid daily newspaper headlines. These are now legends.

FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD

(Daily News, 1975)

Notes: New York City had been seeking federal help to get out of its fiscal crisis. “Drop dead!” is a Yiddish-ism and President Gerald Ford never actually said the words, but the headline was powerful enough for New York City readers. Ford was not re-elected.

HEADLESS BODY IN TOPLESS BAR

(New York Post, 1982)

Note: It’s a matter of historical record that the headline was written by then-managing editor VA Musetto (who is today The Post’s film editor and Cine File columnist).

MARLA: ‘BEST SEX I EVER HAD’ (with The Donald; couldn’t find this image)

(Post, 1990)
