Back in the days before this device had been done to death, some {{B Movie}}s would--as an alternative to printing up a custom faux-newspaper--apparently use certain stock layouts, with everything below the massive main headline cut-and-pasted from previous fake front pages. This is why certain news articles, like [[http://mst3k.wikia.com/wiki/New_Petitions_Against_Tax "New Petitions Against Tax"]], appear on completely unrelated front pages with such frequency. Which [[FridgeLogic does lead one to wonder]] why, with the main headline proclaiming [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Armageddon]], [[WorstNewsJudgmentEver some papers consider "Building Code Under Fire" to be newsworthy]].

* The student election episode of ''CloneHigh'' has one of the best spinning paper gags. The main headline is the sensible and plot-relevant "New Polls In: JFK ahead", but below that is "New Poles In: Tetherball Club Ecstatic".
