CityDesk humor

I just looked at the CityDesk page and noticed the headlines on the articles in the screenshots. Interesting place to put some humor - I guess it makes up for the boredom of making sample data.

'Grandmother of Eight Makes Hole in One' (it's ok, she still has 7 left)
'Local High School Dropouts Cut in Half' (the punishment seems a bit harsh)

Joel has said elsewhere that he often does this with his examples (I think it was in his article on Painless Software Specifications). It makes technical documents less 'dry', and hence easier to read. I like it.
