    HAHA that is legendary.

    My favourite has to be the one from the Falklands War:

    In May 1982 during the Falklans War, the Argentinian cruiser, the General Belgrano, had been sunk by a British submarine, the first newspaper to go to press was The Sun. It's probably their most controversial front page headline.

    When reports filtered through that the entire crew may have died, the headline was changed to ‘Did 1,200 Argies drown?’ for later editions. Hardly anyone saw the original front page as it only made the first Northern editions but ‘Gotcha’ remains legendary in front page history.

    GOTCHA!
