    Default please give me some examples of Parody in news headlines

    Dear teachers,
    I learned parody the other day. for example, the headline "to lie or not to lie --the doctors' dilemma " is the parody of Shakespeare's "to be or not to be", it's interesting, I want to know more examples, but the ability of discerning the speech skill requires a lot of cultural knowledge which I need to improve. So please offer me more examples and I will be very appreciative. Thanks a lot!

    yours

    Search for "Sun front pages", choose images and then ask any questions.
