A news headline from boingboing.com reads:
“Police shoot stuffed animal with Taser”
What comes to your mind?
Here’s what came to ours:
A reader asks … what’s wrong with this headline?
We’re glad you asked.
Read it again and tell us if, by the way it is written, you can determine who has the Taser?
Is it the stuffed animal? “… stuffed animal with Taser”
Or, is it the police? “Police shoot … with Taser”
It might make more sense written as:
“Ploice Taser stuffed animal”
“Taser” is also a verb, isn’t it? Oh dear, that’s a-whole-nother blog post!
