If you surf the web at all you are bound to have come across them. Those headlines designed to make you click on a link.

Retro Photo's of Icons from the 1970's and 80s
33 Unedited WW2 Photographs - Look Closer
kid disrespects parent... and then this happened

You know what's going to happen if you click on it - you are going to be (at best) run through 30 or so single pages, one picture each, with a whole bunch of advertising, dubious links, and other garbage. The item that actually got you there will appear on page 28 - if at all. But you click anyway.

That's what we are looking for in this contest. A 25 word or less headline designed to make you click even though you should know better.

You may enter as many times as you want, but only one click bait item per entry.
