Word of the Day

ambiguous  \am-big-yoo-uh s\
  • able to be understood in more than one way; having more than one possible meaning
  • not expressed or understood clearly
Some of the best examples of ambiguities are found in newspaper headlines.

  • High School Dropouts Cut in Half 
If students do not go to school are they forced to work for a magician?  
"And for my next trick I will saw this student in half."
  • Students Cook and Serve Grandparents
Well I love my grandparents and could not phantom cooking them. 
  • Iraqi Head Seeks Arms
This one kind of makes sense.  The head is definitely going to need the arm first, so that the arm can pick up the rest of the body parts needed.
