It certainly wouldn't have appeared in a local UK paper. The British newspaper industry differs considerably from the American in the existence of eight or nine national dailies, most of which are bigger than all but the biggest (three or four) local dailies. And of the four so-called "quality" dailies, I can only imagine this excellent headline making it to press in the Telegraph or, just maybe, the Guardian. It's certainly pretty outré, even by Telegraph standards.
A reporter at our local paper was caught plagiarizing from a high-school newsletter (written by students). No, I can't see this phrase in our local paper. They'll get all kinds of complaints, which would be hilariously depressing.
