Too good to be true

An axiom often heard in a newsroom is, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is."

With that in mind, I offer up for amusement a Web site called "Overheard in the Newsroom." The title should be self-explanatory. These one-liners, never attributed by name of course, could form the basis of a retro sitcom about newspapers -- y'know, those things that used to have classified ads and movie listings.

While these bon mots are unverifiable, they sound real, which truthily is all you can ask for these days.
