‘Headless Body in Topless Bar’ Genius Out at New York Post

V.A. Musetto, the man behind the all-time great tabloid headline, has been dropped from his most recent role at the paper, film critic, owing to ongoing “budget cutbacks,” Capital New York reports. “After 40 years at the Post, during which I wrote ‘Headless body in topless bar,’ it has come to this,” he wrote to colleagues. (For the record, Musetto preferred, “Granny executed in her pink pajamas.”) We would like to honor his legacy by not making a punny quip, but you should feel free to go to town.
