My Top 10 Colin Mochrie Headlines in WLIIA—Weird Newscasters


With this week’s lack of new episodes from a good number of TV shows I religiously follow, I found myself going back to my YouTube roots and watching Whose Line Is It Anyway? (WLIIA) clips as a form of relaxation.

I had been watching a Weird Newscasters bit with an absolutely hilarious made-up headline from Colin Mochrie as the anchor when an idea hit me: why not watch all of Colin’s headlines again, pick the ten funniest ones, and post them here, in the hopes of sharing the laughter with you (just like what I did with Game Show Boo-Boos last Sunday).

If you want to see the headlines for yourself, here’s a 10-minute clip of all the headlines in Weird Newscasters. Do watch it if you have ten minutes to burn and you want to laugh at really funny made-up news headlines.

Get your laugh organs ready because here we go.

My top ten Colin Mochrie headlines in Whose Line Is It Anyway‘s Weird Newscasters, arranged in no particular order because they’re all absolutely funny to me:

“Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer, dead at 53. Over Barcelona today, the famed reindeer was hit by a flock of seagulls and a 747. Eyewitnesses report, that the reindeer in Spain was hit mainly by the plane.”

“Famous Playboy Hugh Hefner managed to successfully stop an order of monks from operating a business on his property. The police forced the friars to close down their stall, which was outside the Playboy mansion where they had been selling flowers. Said one friar, well, if it was anyone else we may have gotten away from it, but, unfortunately, only Hugh can prevent florist friars.”
