Headlines and captions are like magnets for our eyes.
The more bizarre sounding, the more curious we are.
It’s kind of like having to stop in your car to look at a car wreck, you can’t help yourself.
Some headlines are so far out there that you may already be thinking it is something by “The Onion”, an online publication famous for parodies of real life events. http://www.theonion.com/
Weird but true is the allure of shock and awe.
Who isn’t going to read the article when they see these kinds of headlines and teasers?
