Question of the day

Jun 10, 2015

Our last question asked: Mashable says the hipster is "dead." Who's the successor that we "might not like?" That would be the yuccie (Young Urban Creative)!

Congratulations to Carrie Gray for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go to Lauren Weaver (who doesn't know how to feel about this word), Brian Kearney, Tom Burton, Amy B Wang, Ken Walker, Thomas G Phippen (who calls it "an acronym and an onomatopoeia"), Gerges Scott, David Daniel, Hollywood Highlands, Brian Gallagher (who adds "Or the sound a millennial makes when hit with a selfie-stick"), Laura Walsh and Kristen Jeffers for all getting that exactly right, too.
As for today's question, here it is: Yesterday we lost the man who was credited with writing the "most anatomically evocative headline in the history of American journalism." Who was he, and what was the indelible mark he's made on journalistic history?
