    Misread thread titles

    Sometimes the thread titles are more interesting when you glance down the list and misread one or two, or possibly misinterpret them.

    "PP longshot" - YAY, a new model from PP.

    "Bail Recommendations for Two Middle Aged Blokes" - so what was it they did to need bail????

    The "Daft Thread" usually is.

    Not really a misread title, but I find H&V is one area where an ambiguous thread causes the viewing figures to rocket.

    This causes more of us to view it, creating a cycle of interest that's a bit of an anticlimax.

    For example:

    John Smith - an absolute...

    And we have to open the thread to see what kind of absolute noun John Smith is.

    Only to discover it was related to fishing

    You just made me properly laugh out loud! What an anti climax. ;-)

    Surprised to find this thread is still going :grin:

    I had one today: "Wedding Band Re-sizing" - I assumed they wanted to add a bass player or something.

    EDIT: Also, whenever I see the "BrexitWatch" thread, I think the forum is planning a special edition commemorative watch for the big event.

    How about pictures of enormous breasts being visible? Always makes me cringe when I scroll down the pages whilst on the train commute.

    If you keep your trousers on you're less likely to draw attention to yourself.

    Don't ask me how I know this.

    I ran a statistically significant study where 1000 volunteers each undertook 100 train journeys.

    On half of the journeys, they took their trousers off. The remaining journeys were undertaken in a state of sartorial completeness.

    By measuring the response of fellow commuters, we established beyond reasonable doubt that travelling in an advanced state of undress engendered more attention.

    I hope that is a satisfactory reply. Let me know if you need to see the White Paper on this subject.
