Thread titles - What first pops into your head, when you read one?

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.
