Headlines that make you go...Hmmmmmmmmm...

Post by mexi cali »

This could be a fun place to put those headlines that we all see from time to time. Hidden meanings, double meanings. Just plain head scratchers.

Ok. I'll start.

That last one was good. And you have too much time on your hands. The .jpg shows up on my end so not sure.

It's either fun or not. Either way though, it's fun.

I must really be trying hard to get this thing topic to grow wings.

First of all, there is no such thing as a "tarmac".

Second, the aircraft did not go "off the runway", the nose wheel went into the grass as it turned on to the taxiway. Going "off the runway" would ensue the aircraft either overshot the runway or the aircraft was unable to maintain the centreline resulting in a serious deviation.

Sheesh, talk about exaggerated clickbait.

This isn't a headline, but I didn't know where else to put it, so here are some other boneheaded words strung together. [icon_lol2.gif]

I found this one to be a head scratcher.

It seems the executives in Germany just about lost their lederhosen when Zellmer told them about the buying habits of those crazy Americans, who are more than willing to go from Porsche precision to one of the roughest-riding sport-utes on the market.

I saw that one this morning. Funny. Or maybe "punny" is more appropriate.
