Reading news online early in the morning, when one is still bleary-eyed, is an activity fraught with danger. For instance, this morning I saw this headline and immediately clicked it for the story:

Adam Sandler Arrested by US

After a moment of confusion in the course of reading the linked story, I realized my error. The headline had actually read:

Saddam Handler Arrested by US

Somehow, I think the version I expected might have made a slightly more interesting news item, but that's just my opinion. (I tend to misread things like that quite often. You can imagine my double-take the first time I ever drove past a Fuddrucker's restaurant.)
