The NYT Jumps the Shark

With this headline the New York Times has officially and irrevocably jumped the shark.

"Odd Smells in New Orleans"

Odd smells in New Orleans? Hello?! New Orleans is, by definition, odd smells.

This is like a headline that reads "Traffic in New York City".

Speaking of NOLA smells, the beignets at Cafe Du Monde are one of the nicer smells, not to mention flavours, of New Orleans.

No comments:

"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
