“Can a news story electrocute somebody? The answer may shock you”

News teasers often present a little bit of the story with a question, and then state, “The answer may shock you.” Amir Blumenfeld made a joke of this when he tweeted on September 1, 2015:
 
“Can a news story electrocute somebody? The answer may shock you.”
 
“Can we eliminate clickbait journalism? The answer may surprise you” is a joke on a similar line.
