Today's lesson in misplaced modifiers is brought to you by the letter Pee...

I get what they're trying to say here, but they're saying it retardedly--they're using a very amusing misplaced modifier.

The sentence might read a little better if it said something like: "With his night vision camera, a chopper busts a soldier peeing." Because the way it reads now, it looks like the thing the soldier used to pee was his night vision camera.

Call me crazy, but I thought a soldier would be able to pee as long as he's got a properly-functioning penis. I had no idea night vision cameras were involved in the process of peeing...but really, what the hell do I know, anyway?

Gracias to MOJOE for finding this one! His site, In the Mailbox, is kickass--if you haven't checked it out yet, what are you waiting for, hmmm?
