Great moments in headline writing

Today, my wife showed me a joltingly inappropriate headline from the Quebec fashion magazine Lou Lou. The article, written by Sophie Durocher, is about choosing the right coat.

The headline reads: Les choix de Sophie (Sophie's choices).

I assume that the headline writer had a vague idea that there was once a movie called Sophie's Choice, but never actually watched it nor read the synoposis at IMDB.

I further assume that said headline writer fancied himself rather clever to adapt a movie title for an article about choosing a coat.

Here, then, are a few suggestions for future fashion articles
in Lou Lou :

  • "Mein kampf... to get the right sweater"
  • "Protocols of the Elders of Zara"
  • "Schindler's list... for cheap handbags"
