Oddball headline

Often, while writing an article for publication, writers like to put cheeky headlines at the top of the page. It makes them smile, and it helps provide focus while they write, edit and shape the piece. When the article is finished and is ready for submission, the writers usually replace the headline with something a little more usable.

Sometimes, they forget. When they do, editors almost always pick up on this and change it themselves. This is not always the case, and the result looks something like this piece, published last week on the ARNnet web site: Software fingers workplace bandwidth hogs.
