Baghdad, Iraq (AP) - Sometime during the night, Iraqi officials reported to the Associated Press and Iraqi state television that explosions were heard in the vicinity of Baghdad, the capitol city of Iraq.
Achmed Ahman, a local Iraqi peasant, said that, "I was sound asleep in the bed and I woke to loud noises that sounded like explosions. I got up and went outside and heard several more explosions." Al Jazeera news and Iraqi officials were completely baffled as to the origin of the deafening booms.
Of course, this information comes after CNN, Fox News, ABC News, CBS News, and NBC News have run the "Explosions Heard In Baghdad" breaking news headline for 20 straight days. It has been noticed however that these news agencies have begun entering the number of actual explosions into their headlines in the latest days, purportedly to keep up with which day they've run that particular "Explosions" news story.
It should also be noted that the headline has been cleverly rewritten into "Blasts Rock Baghdad", "Several loud explosions heard in Baghdad" and "Thundering Blasts Shake Central Baghdad" as several of the news agencies try to out-adjectivize each other.
