    Headlines you have to read twice...

    walking past a newspaper rack outside a shop earlier and a headline caught my eye....

    Flat fire man treated

    Now, being me, I instantly assumed a fireman was flattened and has since been treated, a la a tom & jerry...

    Anyone else got any they had to read twice?

    Some years ago there were reports about letter bombs in France.

    The headline: French Letter Bombs

    one recently in my local paper:

    "Freak pants fire kills pensioner"

    Enough said really.

    The Leicester Mercury has cracking headlines.

    Personal fave: "Where have all the drunks gone?"
