Double headlines; or, An answer to a question you might not have asked

A couple of people have e-mailed to ask why I seem so fond of double headlines on my blog posts, such as the headline on this post.

The answer, as are so many answers in our complex world, is rooted in perhaps the Best Cartoon Evah, “Rocky & Bullwinkle,” and the accompanying Fractured Fairy Tales. At the end of each episode, the narrator, William Conrad, perhaps best known for his later role as TV’s portly detective “Cannon,” would say something on the order of, “Tune in next time for, ‘(First part of title, usually short),’ or, ‘(Second part of title, usually longer and often containing a pun.’)”

Here’s a whole pageful of YouTube snippets. Better for you than “Transformers,” for darned sure.
