A few years ago, we ran an piece by some old duffer who was reminiscing about his days as an close pal of Sean MacBride, the politician, human rights activist and 1974 Nobel Peace Prize winner. I managed to shoehorn a Nick Lowe reference into the headline.

I KNEW MACBRIDE WHEN HE USED TO ROCK AND ROLL

I was faintly amazed that they let it go into the paper.

Another time, we interviewed PJ O'Rourke and I gave it the headline PJ PROBING (it made the cut, though I got reams of abuse from everybody else in the office, who thought it was a shit headline). But such opportunities are few and far between.
