Headline of the month

Every now and then an editor gets to have real fun with a headline. For your amusement I have an example of such a headline for you. It was brought to my attention by Chuck Williams, editor of the American Bar Association's Supreme Court Preview. In this case, the source bears mentioning not only because I like to give credit where credit is due, but also because it is the only legal connection to a posting I am putting up strictly for your enjoyment.

The headline comes from an Associated Press article spotted in the Washington Post. The story is about individuals who cross a Korean river on a wire as they use a pole to keep their balance. The precarious practice is called skywalking; the people doing it cross alone without any assistance; and the name of the river is the Han.

Now you be the editor. What headline would you assign to that story?
