Can you come up with a better headline for this image than Fox News?

Fox News has a story today genuinely headlined "AP publishes unflattering pic of Romney bending over".

The piece goes on to ask:

So was it a cheap shot? 

Tim Graham, media analysis director at the Media Research Center, says absolutely. 

"It's unbelievable," he wrote. "It honestly looks like a little girl is gaping at Romney from behind." 

It seems like they missed a trick with running it with such a staid headline, though. Has anyone got any better ideas?

Police shoot man in parliament

A man carrying what appeared to be a knife was shot by armed police after entering the parliamentary estate. 

From the window of the parliamentary Press Gallery, I have just seen police shoot a man who charged at officers while carrying what appeared to be a knife. A large crowd was seen fleeing from the man before he entered the parliamentary estate.

After several officers evaded him he was swiftly shot by armed police.

Ministers have been evacuated and journalists ordered to remain at their desks.
