Here is a bit of newsroom jargon for you: the standing head.
That's a term for a headline that can be saved and reused in subsequent editions of a periodical publication. Examples we employ include “Park Programs” or “Prep Sports Roundup.”
The term occasionally is used jokingly, a way to critique a headline that could be used repeatedly. Examples include “Browns fire (or hire) another coach” or “Indians continue losing streak.”
I mention this because I view dozens of editorial cartoons each month, and lately I have noticed some are the artistic equivalent of a standing head. I'll attach an example.
Have a great weekend.
