It's one hour into the World Cup semi-final match between Germany and Brazil. Well, it's really more like the Germans are playing nobody because in the first half they managed to score a staggering five times while Brazil has yet to score once.

The German attack is indeed lightning fast, but was it really necessary for the Huffington Post to go with this headline?

To their credit, they apparently tossed the Boys from Brazil joke they were initially going to go with.

Update: Final score, Germany 7 - Brazil 1. Right after I posted this, the HuffPost people wisely decided to change their headline. They went with the next most obvious crack.
