Free spins 72890

Having served as a member of the editorial board for my university's weekly newspaper, I'm quite familiar with the ins and outs of layout design.

Like any work-related experience, there's a long list of things you should probably never even think about doing. Included on this list is what's known as tombstoning. This is when two headlines or stories cross paths in a way that gives new meaning to whatever it is the stories were about. Essentially, they're editing mishaps.

With tight deadlines, sometimes things just slip through the cracks. While no publication is without its fair share of mistakes, these 25 layout fails take the cake.

Now, I'm not saying my paper's editorial team was perfect, but I can assure you that most of these would never have been published. Let's just chalk these up to epic, isolated failures.
