Worst Headline Ever

As you may or may not know, singer, songwriter and pioneering rock musician Ike Turner passed away yesterday. The worst headline ever written in the history of printed news announced the fact on The New York Post:
Ike 'Beats" Tina to Death.

Oh my god. That headline is so richly awful, I wish I'd thought of it. I would never have had the guts to say it out loud, but I would have silently congratulated myself on my cleverness and perhaps whispered it to Toasty, who obviously would have gotten the joke.

No...they didn't use that headline, did they? I'm sure Tina will snip it out and frame it.
