CNN’s stupid T-shirts

A while back I noticed that CNN was marketing T-shirts featuring its daily (and hourly) headlines.  It's not a bad concept, really. It seems to me like a way to make money, and they do it in an innocuous manner, although it does make their brand of journalism a bit cheaper. What does bother me, though, is their selection of headlines for the shirts. They bypass the good ones and only use the lame and boring ones.  Here is one from today that you can get on a shirt:
Gonna Procrastinate? It'll cost ya!
And here are the ones that they skipped, all of which are much more interesting or provocative:
Woman, 88, yanks nude intruder's testicles
Death, mutilation of al Qaeda suspect a mystery
Israeli PM: No point in discussing truce
