A homonym/preposition/word choice triple threat!


I'm not sure what I like best about this headline:


1. The homonym error (using "who's" when it should be "whose");



2. The preposition at the end of the phrase (which is OK in common speech, of course, but I think it looks a little awkward here);



or 3. The fact that I see a T-shirt and shorts in this picture but don't see a sarong anywhere. (Did whoever wrote this misunderstand what a sarong is?)


It is way too soon into the new year for me to be beating my head against my desk so hard and so often. But here I sit, doing just that.
