(Coffee) Shop Talk

Welcome to the shop where I talk about things that go well with coffee, which is almost everything.

Crocodile stolen from Irwin center – CNN.com

Granted, “crocodile stolen” is a pretty big attention-grabber, but that’s only 1/50 of the story. Fifty reptiles were stolen in the middle of the night and the culprits made a completely clean getaway. Two of these reptiles were pythons. This was a massive and logistically baffling operation, and the headline reads “crocodile stolen”? I’ve had to write headlines before, and I admit that it is neither fun nor easy (except on rare and pleasant occasions), but really. I mean, this person writes for the freaking AP. Yeesh.

On the other hand, at least it’s not one of those headlines that makes the story sound really interesting and then you click and find out that it’s not, at all.
