    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.

    Sky used to shorten the programme titles on their old platform...

    I was intrigued by the programme title - Extreme Fis.....

    Only to discover it was related to fishing

    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.

    Good question. I believe you reviewed it yourself in great detail - I could be wrong, PC.

    From memory I think you asked for more pictures.*



    *It might have been alexaff who asked for this.
