    The Daily Mail is at it again...

    I think the Daily Mail need better headline writers...




    Via Flickr.

    The Daily Mail's headline writers at 'work' once again, on this article.

    They've since updated the headline, but luckily I took a screenshot of the previous version as well as the new one.

    Original version: "At Last singer Etta James dies at 73 after battle with leukaemia"

    Updated version: "Grammy-award winning singer Etta James dies at 73 after battle with leukaemia"

    Naturally, the source of the first headline is that one of Etta James' most famous songs is called "At Last". Notice also, in the second version of the headline, that the hyphen joins "Grammy-award" rather than "award-winning".

    Did you hear the horrifying news earlier? The Daily Mail is now the most read newspaper on the internet, globally speaking how I fear for the future of mankind!
