rules

I really think that some one should institute a rule to prohibit journalists (or headline writers) from using stupid metaphors like "Turkey's Almost Done" [slate] or "Turkey Wrangling" [CNN] unless the story is actually about the type of bird raised in Turkeyville, MI.

I realize that being a headline writer is probably hard work, and it must be so exciting when something like this comes along: country & bird! the possibilities are endless! I'm just asking for a little restraint. It's just like the much abused "Smoke & Fire" and "Fire & Ice" commentary about Michigan State athletics last year [are these even the right pairings?].
