Shameless act of imitation

Probably my favorite segment of James Taranto's "Best of the Web" site is the snarky comments for silly or "No, Duh" types of headlines. I've occasionally dibbled with such headlines in the past myself, but now I'd like to make it a regular weekly feature, not unlike the [more irregular] "Dopey WNJ Letter of the Week." Here's our first installment:

You don't say! -- "Prices at gas pumps soaring."

We've finally solved the riddle of multiple dimensions: "Fund to Soften Harsh Realities."

Guess this explains why my wife and I have [only] a girl, natch! -- "Pretty parents likely to have girl first."

It's called "Apocalypse Charter School" -- "UA charter school to host survival camp on Saturday."

No jury room must have been available: "Woman found guilty of capital murder in freezer case."

He was always bustin' on everybody: "Rankin supervisor dies."

But, I thought he was our state's lone congressman! -- "Castle keeps Circuit Court clerk."

What is this, illegal organ harvesting? -- "Girls fine, nerves belong to families."

What the hell else is new? -- "Lawyer wants share of fees."
