(TODAY) That’s not the case, however, for a pair of men from Ohio. According to the Sandusky Register newspaper, Roger Oates, 48, bit the eyebrow off his neighbor, Scott Hall, 40, in a weird confrontation that might have never made news outside their neighborhood if not for the men’s last names. (Although come to think of it, eyebrow-biting is not your normal attack move, “Private Eyes” and all.)

The case earned even more fame when the Sandusky Register design desk chief Mike Schaffer slapped a “Maneater: Hall bitten by Oates” headline on the story, leaving media critic Jim Romenesko to declare, “Contest over: We have the headline of the year.”
