Headline of the day: ‘Chad ‘Ochocinco’ gets treinta days in jail’

chad2“Bravo to @BostonGlobe staffer who conceived this gem of a hed: “Chad ‘Ochocinco’ gets treinta days in jail,” tweeted tweeted Joshua Green. Emily Mitchell called it the “Best Inadvertently Bilingual Headline of the Day.”

The headline was changed earlier today to “Backside slap gets ‘Ochocinco’ jail time” to fit into a lower position on the home page, says Boston.com sports editor Matt Pepin. “The producer who wrote the original headline, Jack Pickell, is one of our top headline writers.”
