Dead man walks it

Over the past fortnight we've been carrying out a poll to find your favourite HTFP press funny of 2009. Our original shortlist of ten featured our choice of the best mis-spellings, subbing errors, bizarre news judgements and missing headlines of the past year and we asked visitors to rank them in order.

We are pleased to say the poll produced a clear winner, proving yet again that good old journalistic black humour continues to thrive through these recessionary times....

For the record, the Welwyn and Hatfield Times' A-board received 40pc of the vote, with the Daily Express's unfortunate "Can Dec Anally Match Ant?" headline in second with 21pc, and the Lichfield Mercury's lead story paying tribute to a dead cat on 16pc in third.

Keep the funnies coming in to editor.htfp@and.co.uk and hopefully next year's will be even better!
