Jan 22 2010For Breaking News Always Use CAPS-LOCK

BREAKING-NEWS-CAPS.jpg

Using CAPS in text is the typed equivalent of screaming. I do it for emphasis, but my relatives tend to use it because they're stupid and want to make sure the latest "FW: FW: FW: FW: FW: FW: FUNNY ANIMAL PICTURES" chain email they've sent really grabs my attention. But apparently it's all (CAPS) systems go if we're talking breaking news! CAPS-LOCK: BECAUSE BREAKING NEWS CAN'T WAIT FOR THOSE LOWERCASE PUSSIES.

Thanks to Sharon, who actually does scream all the time in real life and may or may not be related to Susie Greene.

FAGS, ALL OF YOU

I build those kinds of graphics as part of my job, and more often than not, titles and subtitles in news graphics are in all caps by default.

Take a closer look at your news, you'll see that nearly anything that's supposed to be just a few words long will be in all caps. It's just part of the Style Guide.

This one was obviously just a goof, someone accidentally saved the template and no one thought to take a second look. It happens.

I THINK IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO COMMENT USING CAPSLOCK SEEING THAT BREAKING NEWS FOLLOWS THIS MANNER - THEREFORE

CAPSLOCK BITCHES AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

THIS JUST IN. FOX NEWS IS EVIL.

AT WORK THEY ASK THAT ALL INFORMATION IS ENTERED USING CAPSLOCK. THIS INCLUDES NOTE WE ENTER ON OUR PATIENTS. I'M PRETTY SURE THE PROGRAM WE USE WAS CREATED IN THE 50s.

CAPS-LOCK: if you want to be DEAD SERIOUS

reminds me of that time I accidentally left the dummy headline "headline headline headline" in a national newspaper.

DEFINITELY ONE OF THE FUNNIER POSTS AS OF LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HAVE THEY NOT HEARD OF strtoupper(), toUpperCase(), ET AL?!

FIX THIS IN CODE YOU CHEAP BASTARDS. YOU ARE THE REASON WHY USER ERROR IS SO EFFECTIVE AT BREAKING THINGS.
