8 Out Of 10 Readers Don't Read Past An Informative Headline

A study has shown that 8 out of 10 people only read the headline and think they know all about the article. This is a trend with people who lead very important lives, they just can't waste it on clicking links, what happens if the article had links or worse still a video?

 Pussy and yoga, what's there not to like?

Often these people will comment on the story and depending upon their levels of apathy and honesty they might admit to not having read it but have an opinion on what the headline says. For long articles with lots of werds boringly put together to confuse and irritate, people very often admit to having, "skimmed" or "scanned" which deserves some credit for actually trying. It's the thought that counts.

Satirical sites like Newsthump  or The Onion   often hire writers with very little journalistic experience but can put the punchline in the title ... who needs to click if you already have the funny? Old Bitter Balls will never make things that easy for you cunts.

Sometimes when Old Knudsen is lonely he goes to the park and makes the day drinkers give him hugs for a pound .... not long hugs though as lice will take the opportunity to travel and Old Knudsen has enough that are quite resistant to all forms of treatment. If you hadn't have clicked on this story you wouldn't be scratching yer head right now which proves that you can change the world with werds.
