That even worse than something like "Royals receive Colonoskopy. Prognosis: Negative"

I was once told that editors generally pick titles to articles. The writers usually don't have any say so in them.

Nice headline. :-b

I remember back when Colon was playing for the White Sox a few years back and pitched a gem in an interleague game vs. the Dodgers and the L.A. Times had a headline of something to the effect of "Dodgers shut down by Colon". Not as funny as this one, but could you imagine if Colon threw a 6 run stinker of an outing, that the papers would read "Angels experience Colon failure"?

It's almost like the editor was trying to slip that in there to get a laugh.. why else would anyone use the words taste and colon in the same sentence? :-?
