There's an active thread on here at the moment, the title of which I keep reading as "Credibility in Urology". No, I'm not taking the piss.
Urologists' credibility is underpinned by peer review . . .

Scanning the page, for a moment I really thought they had called her Stroud Maternity Unit.

Given their lack of opposable thumbs, I suspect the culprit was more likely to be a serial cat killer. But that's just a hunch.

I was in a hurry and inattentive, so ... Before the actual - and admittedly more obvious - interpretation sank in my lagging mind managed to wonder if either:

- the hiker had missed or ignored the fact she was traversing a toll trail, or ...
- an unusually cunning bear was running a backwoods scam.

Outside my comfort zone.
I thank everyone who contributed their misinterpreted headlines.

Not a headline but a misreading. I casually glanced at a stand of Christmas cards and saw one that read "Pigs In Blankets" that for some reason I read as "piss in blankets."

Instead, it addresses early detection of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
