It's really funny...

I thought we might have a place for those silly headlines that we all read the wrong way because we are always trying to come up with a new plot or just a story line that might interest people or we just read the damn thing wrong...

The real headline...

Egyptian pound inches up on official, weakens slightly on black market

What I read at first...

Egyptian pounds inches up an official, weakness slight on the black market

Several years ago I went shopping with my wife to a mall and as we passed a women's clothing store, she saw a "Clearance Sale" sign that she couldn't resist. She went inside, and I followed. While she shopped, I looked around. Back in the lingerie department I saw a sign, "Ladies' Panties half off." "I think I'm going to see the ladies with their panties half off," I said.

At the Cub Scout Blue and Gold Dinner yesterday, hubby was talking about the job he didn't get. He said, "Well, most of the interview went well, but I blew the plant manager."

If that had been the case, he probably would have gotten the job.

Unless the plant manager didn't like getting blown.

There are many traditional headlines in the UK, some of which are mythical, but most aren't:

Fog in Channel: Europe Cut Off.

[Named Politician] dogged by voters (dogging is a UK term for outdoor sex)

Zeb suggested headlines but others have noted signs and conversations so here is an oldie telegram (today it could be an email )

A husband on a business trip to an exotic location sent a telegram that read: "Having a wonderful time. Wish you were her."
