Farmer Bill Dies In House

Just saw a commercial for this German computer magazin on televison and one of the headlines on the title caught my eye.

I translated it and am left wondering, are they giving tips on how to surf on prohibited, illegal sites where anything is free or are they warning you about same site? Do they encourage you to use them or trying to prevent you from doing so?

There's nothing like a headline that leaves something to the imagination like these funny newspaper headlines show:

"Grandmother of eight makes hole in one"

"Deaf mute gets new hearing in killing"

"Police begin campaign to run down jaywalkers"

"Stiff opposition expected to casketless funeral plan"

"Two convicts evade noose, jury hung"

"William Kelly was fed secretary"

"Milk drinkers are turning to powder"

"Safety experts say school bus passengers should be belted"

"Quarter of a million Chinese live on water"

"Farmer bill dies in house"

and my favorite:

"House passes gas tax onto senate"

I love headlines that make you think...and laugh. :)

The advert presumably will make people buy the magazine to find out. An Anti-Nerv DVD sounds interesting to a non German-speaker, though the best disk to sort out Windows problems is one with Linux on it ;-)

I loved those headlines. Especially the milk drinkers one...
