Winners of our April Fool’s “Write Your Best Fake Headline” Contest

First off, thanks to everyone who participated in our April’s Fools “Write Your Best Fake Headline” contest. (If you missed it, you can get the details here.) Second I had a blast reading through all entries. For a moment I was really excited, as I read one entry that said “Brian is Super Awesome!” and I thought, that’s pretty cool of someone to send! Then I realized that I was the one who sent it when testing the system. #FAIL

Anyway, without further ado, the winner of our Facebook April Fool’s “Write Your Best Fake Headline” contest is:
