Thank you for all your entries. Due to an editing error, Mr. Haines' winning caption was published incorrectly in Monday's Observer. The version here is the correct one.
Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received this week:
"Paris Hilton didn't make the news today!"
"It’s a special edition highlighting all the successes of the Bush administration."
"What'd expect? Dow Jones sold the paper on margin."
"What's your problem? Rupert has been using see-through models in his other tabloids for years."
"Looks like he's finally giving the left and the right the same amount of coverage."
"It's great, they started listing only the stocks that went up."
"I cut out the articles about Britney Spears and Lindsey Lohan."
"The Wall Street Journal has adopted the same format for reporting business news that The Observer uses."
"I like the Journal a lot better now that Murdoch has gotten rid of all that news I disagreed with!"
"I see they removed all of the stories about Wall Street cheaters."
"I told you it was a 'bear' market dear!"
"I've heard of a new owner "gutting" a newspaper but this is ridiculous!"
"This way, you can read the paper and watch FOXnews at the same time."
"I didn't realize that the Wall Street Journal used to feature so many stories critical of Rupert Murdoch."
"It's more 'fair and balanced' now, dear."
"All the news that's fit to print!"
"No news is good news!"
