Another headline

One of the modern classics in the ‘amusing headline’ genre is:

Ike ‘Beats’ Tina to Death

The story appeared in the December 13 edition of the New York Post. Ike didn’t kill Tina, but rather he died before she did. I have to believe that they were fully aware of the meaning people would pull from the headline, if even for a moment, before processing the single-quotes.
