Sun-Times leaves in placeholder text for Bears headline: ‘Hedy Hey Hedy Hey Hedy’ (pic)


That’s a shame. The Chicago Bears are in such a tailspin that the ink-stained wretches working at the Chicago Sun-Times are shirking their responsibilities to come up with actual headlines for stories.

Craig Newman, managing editor of the Sun-Times, took to Twitter to reveal how the headline was actually supposed to read.

Much better.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t “Hedy Hey Hedy Hey Hedy” a line from the extended B-side version of Berry Mann’s 1961 classic, “Who Put the Bomp (In the Bomp, Bomp, Bomp)”? Yeah, that’s probably not right.

Either way, it would have been far cooler if the placeholder had been “Lido woah oh oh oh.” Not that it would ever be used for filler, but you know, because Boz Scaggs rules and stuff.
