One of the most important skills a copy editor can have is a dirty, skeptical mind. If you can spot sexual innuendo from a mile away and pick up on unintended racial slurs, you might have a future in headline writing and proofreading. The people at these newspapers and websites clearly didn't possess that necessary ability and let these terrible (and sometimes terribly awesome) headlines slip through the cracks. These headline mistakes probably got someone in trouble, but at least we can all learn from or at least laugh at them.
