Real-life headlines/blurbs you swore you saw
 
Following through on Tootsie Plunkette's great idea...


Blurb in a slide during a workplace safety training course (paraphrase):

Some motions are additive and repetitive.


What I saw: Some motions are addictive and repetitive.

Can I add road signs? There's a sign on the interstate near here that says "Center Lane Does Not Exit." Every single time I read it, I think it says, "Center Lane Does Not Exist."

Sure! Whatever you see in real life! :cool:

I was flipping through my program guide and came across "Mega Decks" on the DIY Network.

Which I read as Mega Dicks. :eek::eek::eek:

Headline in a Florida newspaper recently:

"Armed man in strapless dress wanted in Hollywood robbery"

One of the unique headlines I've seen in quite some time!

On a recent drive to Kentucky my wife and I saw several signs mentioning Bell Buckle, TN. I persistently misread them as Belt Buckle until Mrs. from Georgia read one aloud and wondered how a town got that name.

What I thought I saw on a church marquee: Save the dust! Vacuum Bible School.


Actual sign: Save the dates! Vacation Bible School.


Well cleanliness is next to impos--er Godliness!:p

I passed a sign this afternoon advertising a beer tasting. At first glance I read "beaver tasting." And that could be interpreted multiple ways... :-o

From a bumper sticker last evening:

How I saw it:
Vape like your life depends on it.

What it really said:

VOTE like your life depends on it. (it was a NOW bumper sticker)

Link on a local news site: Will This Bold Stroke Fix Metro Faster?


How I read it: Will this BLONDE Stroke Fix Metro Faster?

Headline: Sausage-wearing 'neo-Nazis' pelt vegan cafe customers with meat, and brawl ensues

Somehow (missing the hyphen) I thought it said "Sausage wearing 'neo-Nazis' pelt..." and became very confused and somewhat alarmed.

A gossip rag had a headline something like "Clooney is gay: Amal is stressed" But in the quick glance of a headline written over a photo, I read it as "Clooney is gay: Anal is stressed". Well, okay, then, a little TMI there.

Entry in the description field on my workplace database: Park Name/ Kitchen and Mech Closet.

How I read it: ...Kitchen and METH Closet.


In case you're wondering, yes, I amended the entry so that 'mechanical' was spelled out!

On the Previously TV forums:

What it actually said: "House Flipping Shows"

What I read: Horse Flipping Shows

Trump, family meet at Prince's home amid VP speculation

Which one? William? Harry? The (late) Artist formerly known as? I don't think they are eligible. Will Smith, maybe.

Just saw this headline on a local news-talk website: Fairfax Co. officials citing cars registered out of state

How I read it: Farifax Co. officials citing CATS registered out of state.

Well I guess there are people in Fairfax County (VA) that drive either Cougars or Jaguars.

Come explore the historic clowns of the Not-the-real-name apartments
