Edit News Headlines

Edit a headline by selecting one of the blue words, then adding a single-word replacement that can be found in a U.S. English dictionary and that does not violate the rules of English. You can optionally self-rate your edited headline's funniness. Then, click "Submit".
You can click one of the news categories below to load headlines from that category. You can skip a headline by just ignoring it, and you can permanently skip a headline from editing by clicking the SKIP button. Re-clicking a selected word cancels editing of its headline.

IMPORTANT: Please do not use words that show abusive behavior, such as using slang, hate speech, crude sexual references, bathroom humor, jibberish words (e.g. "jkwqe"); and please do not join clear multiple words into one (e.g. "jumpedOverWall" is not allowed, but "breakdancing" is allowed). If you make such edits, other players will flag them as Abusive/Spam, and continuous exhibition of such behavior will lead to your disqualification from the competition. Please help keep a healthy competition environment.
