Before the internet, magazines, and newspapers are the most popular medium of entertainment, news, and information; however, paper media remains to be relevant today. Although, some layout artists are not doing a great job at their headline and photo placements, that everything does not seem to make sense. Some pages are easily misunderstood, while some are just hilarious fails. This list is just proof of that; thus you have to see them for yourself.
1. What Have We Missed?
We can’t decide whether this one or the witchcraft headline is worse. What do you think?
Well, announcing their appearance should make arresting them an easy task for the police.
3. Wait, Where Are They Hiding?
Can you imagine people panicking at the thought that 25,000 paedophiles are hiding in their houses? Such a bad layout here.
4. Dinner At Rachel’s
Maybe going to Rachel’s house for dinner isn’t such a good idea after all. Poor dog, he could be the last survivor.
5. Looks Like A Pattern
This newspaper seems to have made a habit out of hiding the first “e” in “where”, right? And it just so happens to be women featured.
6. Great Day
Really, what is great about the day when sex offenders have just been released?
7. Pilot Training
This is so confusing- a rapist in pilot training? This is such an unfortunate newspaper cover.
In case you’re wondering, you can play bowling. We know, not a very good advertisement idea.
9. Monkey Worries
Is this really a picture accompanying the article? We’re so curious to know what this is all about!
10. Unfortunate Ad Placement
Who would put a Gas Networks ad next to an article about concentration camp survivors? Just distasteful.
11. Witch And Criminal?
Maybe they should be more careful with their covers next time. Queen can’t have been happy about this.
12. Whatever “Suits” You
Well, the reflection sounded like a good idea, but in fact it wasn’t so successful.
13. Pancakes To Fight Obesity
These two articles simply shouldn’t be put next to each other. Unless they intend to say pancakes are the cause of obesity.
Yes, it’s supposed to be “newsbite” in case you were wondering. Although there are other interpretations too.
For some weird reason we got really worried the first time we read this headline.
16. Can’t Be Unintentional
We bet this was done in purpose. Guess who isn’t sorry to say goodbye to these senior staff members.
17. His Last Words
Although one can be pretty sure that the poor guy’s last words were close to “aah”, this layout looks too cynical.
Bad news is bad. This newspaper layout just made it worse.
19. Furry Offender
We used to love these dogs, but in light of this news we might have to reconsider.
20. Just, No!
Everything about this cover is wrong. Really, what was the editor thinking?
The placement of this advertisement was a terrible mistake. Really, what were they thinking?
22. “We Need To Talk”
That’s probably what the director told the editor the morning after the newspaper was published.
23. Holiday Gone Wrong
Whatever you do, make sure the holiday you choose doesn’t involve a ship. Don’t ask why.
Another magazine that should be extra careful with their covers. Let’s say this one was a bad idea after all.
Our impression is this was done on purpose. For what reason, no idea.
26. Uhh… No?
When the layout really goes bad, then there are no words to discribe it.
27. Double Trouble
Yet another unfortunate layout. Do they even look at the newspapers before publishing them?
28. It Works
Looks like the poor kid’s parents were following some extreme diet that “can make you thin”, maybe too much so.
Who would have thought members of the Royal family of Englanh were witches? We now know thanks to this newspaper- or maybe not.
30. Mystery Solved
Wondering what they were planning to do with the dead cats? Apparently cook them.
31. Bye Bye!
Terrible as this news is, we couldn’t help giggling a little bit at the photo placed next to it.
One more newspaper fail. Maybe try to be more careful with these things?
33. Oh, No!
This one’s really bad. Although one can tell it wasn’t part of the newspaper, so let’s not blame the editor for once.
34. Bald Guy
Maybe putting a bald guy at the cover of the newspaper wasn’t a very good idea. Still eye-catching though.
35. Not What It Seems
When you’re a cyclist and all you want is to cross the world for a good cause and you bump into this in a local newspaper.
We’re wondering, what was it that George saved the pup from? Can’t help looking above their pictures.
Yeah, looks like the kind of reaction someone reading the magazine would have. Still, kind of wrong.
Relax, it’s just champagne- or is it?
Looks like this headline-photo combination could cause some confusion, don’t you think?
This “alphagear” thing seems to attract female attention! This kind of looks intentional to us.
