What Is "Probably Bad News"?:

The Cheezburger Network, the company behind Failbook, Bad Tattoos and Engrish, has yet another winning single-topic blog concept on their hands in Probably Bad News; typos, misprints, funny headlines and all the sorts of stuff that Jay Leno might read on the headlines segment on the Tonight Show.
Like most of the single-topic blogs out there, Probably Bad News has a simple concept that lives and dies on its execution. I'm glad to report that the execution is pretty good -- I'd say the hit ratio is about 2 funny headlines for every 1 unfunny one, which is pretty good on the Internet. Also, editors of Probably Bad News, if you ever find an egregious typo on this site… please be kind. Love, Lukas.
