Misread thread titles?
« on: February 18, 2011, 02:45:55 AM »
I frequently misread things around here, especially thread titles.

The latest example is a thread by Venus, which includes "Bead website" in the title. I keep thinking this says "Bread website", and I'm curious about what people are saying about this website for David Gates and company. :D

I'm quite certain I'm not the only person who does this, so tell me of your funny misreadings.

I've had a lot, but the only one I can remember was something about a sibling being a wedding photographer or asking a sibling for a favor or something. I read it as, "Sibling as wedding favor?"
The status is not quo!

LOL, I did as well! I also read 'You just ate breakfast in a full service restaurant' as 'Your dog just ate breakfast in a full service restaurant', and I have no idea why. None of the surrounding threads said anything about dogs-- my cat is going to be ashamed of me.

"Cooking shows you love and hate"

First time I saw it, I thought "I can understand how cooking can show you love someone, but what would you cook to show you hated someone?" and then it dawned on me...

Or perhaps, "Cooking shows you love and hate...what?" ;)

Not thread titles, but I've just been looking through the online bulletin for my church, and managed to commit two fairly odd misreadings in quick succession.

Apparently my church "urgently needs volunteers to be Jewish", and is also prepared to discuss "What Jesus has to say about erotic thoughts and lemmings".

(Stewards and longings, FTR. Not nearly so exciting.)

It's 6.29 am, and I need more coffee already. ::)

Well...I guess erotic thoughts and lemmings COULD be dangerous...

Quite so! And I don't even want to think about what could possibly qualify as an "erotic lemming"... :o

Although The Erotic Lemmings would be a great name for a band. ;D
