Worst Chronicle Headline-Photo SNAFU yet

Posted By on Fri, May 2, 2008 at 2:03 PM

In what may be the most unintentionally hilarious local headline-photo matchup since the Oakland Tribune obituary for former U.C Berkeley coach Nibs Price featured the headline "Death Calls Nibs Price" — and a photo of him on the phone — take a gander at the instant masterpiece from below:


Apparently Star Jones once roamed Yosemite! In fact, isn't that a picture of Star now? And to think: Star Jones has had an impact on the local ecology (in fact, wow! Star Jones has had an impact on anything!)

Whoever is responsible for this — thanks! You made our day.

Enjoy the weekend. And if you see Star Jones, jump up and down, make a lot of noise and maybe even throw your keys at her. Whatever you do, don't run. She can't resist the instinct to chase (especially if you're pointing a camera at her).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
