Okay, so we’ve all done it. While waiting in line at the grocery store behind some woman with a cart full of canned goods and right in front of a woman with a cart full of screaming children, we’ve all snuck a peek at the tabloid headings. Maybe we’ve even gone so far as to pick up a copy and flip through. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve often looked at those headings and wondered, “Who comes up with this stuff?”

Well, Peter Fenton was one of those guys who came up with that stuff. As a reporter for the National Enquirer for 15 years, Peter saw all kinds of great stories—some true, and others not-so-true. And now he’s put together a book/game called Truth or Tabloid? It’s a collection of headlines that are totally unbelievable and ridiculous—but some of them are actually true. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to determine which headlines are true and which are the result of an overactive imagination.

The front of each page features five headlines. You (and your friends, if you happen to have a few handy) try to guess which ones are truth and which are tabloid, and then you turn the page to find the answers—and a little more information about the headline and the story that goes with it.

Truth or Tabloid? is an interesting book to pick up from time to time—especially if you happen to have the aforementioned friends nearby to play along. But don’t try to sit down and read it from cover to cover like a regular book—it’s guaranteed to mess with your head.
