Misread thread titles

Stalins and grapefruit

What they invariably ask for after they step out of the cloning chamber?

It doesn’t smell! Let’s call it something else!

SDMB Photo Thread - Show us a potato!

Is potato.

Remember making ‘suicide’ drinks at the fountain of youth?

No, but maybe when I drank from the fountain of youth that caused memory loss and identity death.

Re-engineering a turtle-ramjet

Better streamline the shell while you’re at it, or the turbulence could be catastrophic.

Utah Goldilocks - new currency

The currency that’s just right.

I am sure Gamera could easily handle the upgrade.

Headline on the ESPN website:

Sources: Suns purchase likely official by Feb. 9

I read that as the Phoenix Suns buying an NBA official, to make sure more calls go their way during the team’s stretch run to the playoffs.

General Motors suck

I mean, that’s not an uncommon opinion.

LaTeX support Broken?

I hope she’s on the pill.

Well, I thought that at last, the Secret Service had some meat to UFO stories…

Help me help my mom to go catless

Throwing out the litterbox is a good first step.

Amazingly, she managed that one all by herself, though anyone who knew her for the past several decades when we continuously had between 2 and 3 cats would have found that hard to believe. She said that with as long as the last ones lasted, if she got another, she’d still be cleaning litter-boxes at 90, and she wasn’t going to have that.

Well, OK, she does still sort of have one, but it’s an outdoor-only cat, so no litter-boxes involved.

I thought this thread title “Could have a silver lining I guess” was a bit vague, I opened it and read the first few posts and concluded “yeah, definitely too vague, I should report it for a title change” and right then as I was looking for the report button the thread title re-resolved to the correct one right before my eyes.

Tonight’s misread thread title:
Seeking a solution to prevent being stabbed by a pin worm on my clothing

shit, they do that?

Vicious little bastards, those pin worms.

Why Are You Hand-writing Quarks?

Um, because they don’t have email?

Unlimited Summer Fights? $399?

Seems kinda pricey. We’ve got plenty of bars around here where you can see all the fights you want, without paying a cover charge.

Not a thread title but:
Do any of you get the channel where they frequently show an infomercial called “Grow Your Hair Back”, and do you constantly read it in the TV listings as “Grow Your Back Hair” and then throw up in your mouth a little bit?
