Here's what they think makes for a good headline:

HERO CABBIE: I KICKED BURNING TERRORIST SO HARD IN BALLS THAT I TORE A TENDON

And they're right!  Talk about a headline that draws the reader in.  So here's what the article says, since I'm sure you're curious:

A HERO cabbie who took on the Glasgow Airport terror suspects told yesterday how he booted one of them in the privates.

Alex McIlveen, 45, kicked the man, whose body was in flames, so hard that he tore a tendon in his foot.

"You were expecting sixty-seven virgins?" he then yelled, whilst kicking him again.  Actually no he didn't, but that would have been the only thing to make this story better. 

Comments

I didn't know balls had tendons.
