Amusing misread

Created Fri 9 Jun 06 - 4:17 by Mithandir in category A Pixie's World

My reading comprehension skills aren't always up to snuf. Today, for instance, I misread the following line from a BBC news article:

"Another shaven-headed monk knelt by the Dalai Lama's chair,"

as

"Another seven-headed monk knelt by the Dalai Lama's chair,"

I think my version is funnier tho, but it caught me offguard for a moment :)

Shadow PhoenixI've occasionally done that sort of thing. No good examples immediately come to mind, though.

What scares me is to think that there were multiple seven-headed monks.
MithandirYeah ... that scared me too.
