This paper asked readers to choose their front-page headline – and they didn't disappoint

Admittedly, the caption competition was for a headline on the front page – but some of the entries were exquisite.

An Australian newspaper gave members of the public the opportunity to decide their front page news headline.

The subject matter? A crocodile eating a pig of course.

The NT News’ Twitter bio reads: “There’s more to us then just crocs and witty headlines. When we find out what they are, we’ll let you know.”

It’s fair to say they’ve stuck to doing what they do best here then. Here’s how their readers got on…

Some took the pig angle.

Others took the pig angle to a dark place…

Don’t you go wishing that on Peppa Pig, Colin! Look at her happy face.

How could a crocodile possibly be so cruel?

Back to the puns. One or two managed to create the perfect balance between croc and pig.

Not bad, not bad.

In the end though it was the piggy puns which won the day.

A swine pun indeed – incredible this whole article managed not to ham up more pig jokes really…
