Irony is Just the Topps

by Sam Miller

Copy editors are some of the cleverest, coldest, most irreverent people you'll ever meet. So when a terribly naughty headline or ironic photo caption makes it into print, it's always hard to say whether it was an accident or some mischievous lad or lass on the copy desk having a laugh. Like this: 

Can't be an accident, can it? Can't be an accident.
