Ladies & Gentlemen, I Present the UCLA Daily Bruin ‘Brain Thingey Yayayay’ Headline

I love The Daily Bruin. The student newspaper at UCLA is one of the best outlets in collegemediatopia. It is editorially excellent and a true example of what can be achieved through convergence and multi-platform innovation. I write all this because I am now going to post a photo of a funny copy slip featured in yesterday’s issue. Build ’em up, tear ’em down. :)  DB, no worries, it happens!

The full text of the accidental sub-hed, undoubtedly an editor’s late-night command to an underling: “Please fill out this subhead with this brain thingey thanks yayayay.”

    How about we all agree to send in our stupid mistakes? Happens to us all at some point. I still remember mine from my college paper.
