Meet the Flintstones… Yabba Dabba Doo Hawaii Tribune

Yesterday, I posted a blog asking the local papers to make it a bit more enjoyable:

“Is there any way that you folks can make your articles a bit more entertaining to read?”

I must say… I had to laugh this morning at one of the headlines on the front page of the print version… (I’ll give you Tribune Readers more on this since I actually saw this long before it was in the paper)

“Meet the Flintstones”

Although it is an AP generated article… at least it gave me a good laugh and a reason to read the rest of the article.

It is to bad that the Hawaii Tribune can’t provide more to it’s readers… Like an actual link to the EBAY auction on the “Flintstones House” for auction.  But if your interested in at least seeing the listing… I’ll provide it here.

You can also see an actual video of it here:

This is exactly what I was talking about by making the paper a bit more entertaining to read… and while your at… could make it more interactive (well at least the online version of the Tribune… BUT WAIT… The article isn’t even listed in the ONLINE Version!)

Of course the caption in the picture that was on the front page also kind of cracked me up:

“The Ngs were awaiting delivery of a bag of Waipio Valley Poi”

I’m not sure what that had to do with the article about cigarette smoking… but it sure added a bit more of a personal touch to the picture then just a normal caption might.
