The newspaper given to Sheldon by Nora, if read closely, is a joke within itself. Visible in the shot, the middle and right paragraphs read: "The stories that people come up with are so very entertaining. Create different articles everyday? I'm sure it's much easier when you have a topic to write about which I currently do not. The serial killer pictured above is in fact not really a serial killer. He or she is probably a friend of someone who let us use their photo."
