I do. I don't know what's wrong with me. I keep seeing thread titles as something else:



Magical Quiznos! (Hey, I like their veggie sub, but it's not THAT great)



Are grits possessed? (Only if the cook admits to being a Black Magic Voodoo Woman.)



Honey? (Yes, dear?)



The Slippery Confessional (Don't leave banana peels on the ground!)



Singing Water Bottles (Do they know "The Impossible Dream"?)



Is it OK to snork your kids? (Of course; they're very snorkable!)



Share music ideas to Boston (I'm sure the people of Boston would greatly appreciate knowing your music ideas)

From another board...



93 year old busted in sex sting - Read as: 93 year old busted in sex thing.



I thought jeeze, these reporters can't come up with a better title?

I do, too...but I can't think of many examples.

I always read/think something dirty...



Like, "Does anyone own a magic bullet?" (I was thinking of the sex toy)

Or, "When should sex ed be offered?" (I read: When should sex be offered?)

I can't remember the exact wording, but one thread a couple of months ago started with something like, "Nun wants rapist" and there was more, but the rest of the title didn't show up on my screen. That was an eyebrow raiser, for sure.

I actually experienced that many, many moons ago. I was working at a hospital located in an area that's predominantly African-American and Latino. Some church group had permission to come in one day and distribute mini-sized copies of the New Testament to whoever wanted one. Since it was just the NEW Testament, I kinda felt left out.

What, you've never seen a baloney garden before?!



EVERY time I see one of the Bad Pit Bull threads, I read them as "Brad Pitt Bull".

i read this right, but whenever i see it, the 'fake-ass friends' thread title makes me visualise someone shaking their head in disaproval at all of their mates, who are standing around wearing oversized rubber buttocks.
