'New car diddy kiddy dumb daddy dough' is headline of the year frontrunner

A clear frontrunner has emerged in Axegrinder’s headline of the year competition.

It’s The Sun’s awesome headline from February this year about the news that Rap star P. Diddy had blown £220,000 on a luxury car for his teenage son – who did not even have his driving licence.

NEW CAR DIDDY KIDDY DUMB DADDY DOUGH

It has garnered more than 60 of the 100 votes cast so far.

Unfortunately, the utterly crap piece of software Axegrinder used to collate the votes so far – Polldaddy – only lets me collect 100 votes, and we have already exceeded that limit.

So I’m re-opening the voting again with a new poll widget, this time provided by Blogpoll.com

Don’t worry if you have voted already, you’re vote will be added to the new tally.

Here are the headline of the month stories and headlines from the last year, scroll to the bottom to cast your vote.

Remember to cast your vote wisely, bearing in mind that the author of the winning headline will receive a weekend at the luxury lodge on the Isle of Jura where George Orwell wrote 1984 – courtesy of our sponsors Jura single malt whisky.
