Punny stuff
From CNN:

Elton to tie knot in Windsor

Man, how do I apply for that headline-writing job?

Nicely done, unattributed-to reporter.

(for the dense, see the Wikipedia entry for windsor knot)
You see more good puns in internet news mainly due to a different set of spacial restrictions.

When you see good headlines in newspapers it's because a bunch of things went right: Copy came in right on, content editors didn't get too excited with the red pen, layout and edit weren't too rushed for time, the Style-Nazis didn't have anything to say about it. It's tough. This is why the best puns come in the sports pages.
that was beautiful.
I, too, saw that headling...but unlike you, I didn't pick up on the pun bit. Good observation, Nathan.
