Not a thread title but a news headline:

Why men are uncomfortable talking about Weinstein.

I read as:

Why men are uncomfortable talking about Wisconsin.

Ativan questions and help, please

I knew there were people who have no use for mini-vans, but I didn't know there was a cult of them.

This was a Facebook headline:

Trump said he would have run Parkour to fight off the shooter

Now there's a video I'd love to see, the Great Orange One dodging bullets by effortlessly bouncing off walls and stairwells until he comes up behind the shooter and disables him with a firm karate chop to the throat.

Even with threads that have been around for a while, sometimes I misread the title as I'm skimming over it. Today, for a moment, I saw Pony sized spaghetti.

So I'm looking at the scroll bar on the right side of my screen and twitch my eyes left to the scrolling thread titles and just for a second I read "Bathroom remodel... advice needed" as "Butthole removal... advice needed." (I had just read this article and it must have been influencing my mind.)

NJ Driving Law: use of cellphone while stopped at a red light


I misread this one today. For some reason I thought that New Jersey had some esoteric laws prohibiting the use of cellophane while driving.

With the thread on "sexual braggers" by HoneybadgerDC, my mind keeps trying to blend the title and OP lines together into "sexual badgers."

Another forum has a thread titled Texas GOP Endorses Cannabis Decriminalization.

I keep misreading it as Texas GOP Endorses Cannibalism.
