Deseret News is out today with a clever piece of work. 26 headlines for Bible stories, written as internet click bait.

Here are some of my favorites. Try to guess the stories, and then head over to Deseret News to see if you’re right.

“My Two Moms? This King Gives the Craziest Maternity Test Ever!”

“42 Kids Made Fun of Elisha’s Bald Head. What Happened Next Will Keep You Up for Weeks”

“So You Had a Bad Day? Trust Me His was Worse”

“Unexpected Floating Trip Takes Baby From Rags to Riches”

“10 Things You Should Stop Doing. Number 6 is Killer”
