Newspaper may have overdone it on this cricket headline

Can a headline jump the shark? This one may have.

Former Australian cricketer Shane Warne is a legendary Lothario. Think Derek Jeter, but smarmier. So when it was reported he spent the night with a brassiere mogul WHILE in England to try and reconcile with ex-fiancee Elizabeth Hurley (yes THAT Elizabeth Hurley) The Sun newspaper took it on themselves to write the best headline ever.

Let's break it down into its components:

"OVER THE SHOULDER BOWLER"

Yes, that is traditionally how cricket is played. We're right with you.

"BOWLS OVER"

Accepted vernacular for woos. We remain on board.

"AN OVER THE SHOULDER BOULDER HOLDER"

Alright, you're losing us a touch here. We get what you're saying, breasts are boulders, bras are holders. OK, let's see how this ends up.

"MOULDER"

Ah, We get it! She moulds the boulder holders. Well done Sun. It took us a little time to work this one out, and our minds went one place initially.
