Headline Headcase

I'm blaming it on my split 3-day weekend - working Monday, off Tuesday obviously plays havoc with my mental abilities. Checking the news this morning, I have had the following problems with current event headlines:

Crack Found in Shuttle Tank Foam - immediate thought is our astronauts are involved in some serious drug smuggling. Wonder what the market for cocaine is like in outer space.

Body To Provide 'Mixed Housing' - think at once that social action is going too far if we're trying to provide equal opportunity to scavengers.

Green Fears Grow as Britons Binge on Gadgets - Complicated one here, get a mental image of nicely trimmed green fears providing a picnic setting for Britons as they have a hearty meal of ipods and razor phones. Do you want catsup with that?

I have to admit, the news is more fun my way.

Well, once they introduced Tickle Me Elmo you knew corruption and degradation was inevitable.

Ok, I know that it's a few days late but hey! I was on vacation.

After reading this one I almost fell on the floor I was laughing so hard. I'm glad that David wasn't in his office. As it is Amy caught me laughing and I had to share.
