Every now and then a headline gives me the giggles. As much as I love a good, well-crafted headline, a certain visual gets my mind running off in different directions and I can't stop laughing. This week, "Cat beats stupid stockbrokers in year-long money-making exercise. Spends profit on an explosive tennis ball to kill dog" was that headline.
From the mental image of a cat in a suit scowling at a moving market on a computer screen while anguished Wall Street traders pulled their hair out as they saw cat pulling ahead and looked at what stocks the cat was picking. The cherry on top was the image of a dog bounding into a room and saying, "Oooh, tennis ball!" before the explosion blackened his face and whiskers, cartoon-style.
There were better headlines this week, but that one entertained me the longest. Thank you, subby.
