You're a bad man! The "Steamy Chinese Buns" caught me off-guard too...

Seeing these two thread titles listed consecutively on the 'new threads' page left me with all kinds of unsavoury images...

Sometimes when perusing the "Today's Posts" list of thread titles, some just jump out and invite an immediate response (from me at least), purely from the title alone - immaterial of what the actual post subject matter may be.

It can either be, a case of the exact title having an ambiguous meaning, or an accidental, or deliberate misreading of one or more of the words, or just even typos.

I often have an insatiable desire to post a reply (in a troll-like fashion) on many threads, but really have to control myself - especially having read the opening post, and realising that a supposed attempt at wit, may no longer be relevant or appropriate.

I don't know if I'm the only weirdo in this regard, or if there are any other readers out there, who pick up on this?

So I thought it might be an idea to start a thread where anyone who spots a "funny" thread title could post a reply here, to include the thread title concerned (immaterial of the actual content), and their interpretation of it's meaning, and/or what reply they would make in relation to the title alone.

I hope this idea will a create a bit of light humour and not cause any offence to those who create a thread, on what might be a completely serious matter, but with an unfortunate or misconceived title.
Good idea for a thread TiMow.

This title thread was not misleading or misspelled or anything. It did exactly what it said on the tin.
But (like you I guess TiMow) after a while you realise that posting an 'amusing' reply can only lead to much EF PAIN and SUFFERING.

I once started a thread entitled 'Please Sit Down Before Reading This' to get attention and it was about finding a British Style white sliced loaf. Guilty your honour.

What about this one, [sale-Zurich] Convertible Wardrobe, Escalator, trashbin, Iron. I really wanted a convertible wardrobe and an escalator, so imagine my disapointment when I clicked. The Vag Com title also had me wondering
