headline of the month

From Reuters
Michael Jackson scarecrows get Taiwan birds to beat it
Similarly, from ABC News (Australia) reprinting the article from Reuters but modifying the headline (they are good with puns).
Jacko scarecrows get birds to beat it
The story was about a rice farmer in Taiwan dressing a scarecrow as Michael Jackson. Reuters could have had a bit more fun but only gave one more fun sentence.
But not everyone in the family thinks the scarecrow idea is a thriller.
You know I'm bad, I'm bad...
