A COLLECTION OF THE FUNNIEST, CRAZIEST, WITTIEST, MOST MEMORABLE FRONT PAGES FROM THE NT NEWS.

It isn't called the TOP END for nothing! With witty editing, masterful puns, searing social insight and - when all that fails - the use of the word 'clacker', the NT News has changed the face of the Australian front page. They're tops! While a picture may tell a thousand words, they've proved that the combination of a photo and caption is really what delivers the message. And they don't need a thousand words - most of the time eight or less will do.

I WAS MUGGED BY A CROC
DOG KILLED BY YOWIE
FROG STRUCK BY LIGHTNING
WHY I STUCK A CRACKER UP MY CLACKER

Now, for the first time ever, the news team who came up with these attention-grabbing gems have ventured into the archives to share some of their favourite front pages with the world. WHAT A CROC! is a collection of the funniest, craziest, wittiest, most memorable front pages from the NT NEWS. Do yourself a favour!

'THERE'S MORE TO US THAN CROC FRONT PAGES AND WITTY HEADLINES. WHEN WE FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY ARE, WE'LL LET YOU KNOW. P.S. WE LOVE SHOUTING. - overheard at the NT News headquarters
