Lost and found, and found *again*...


The Department of Redundancy Department strikes again. This time, they're finding bodies...that have already been found! Way to go, you guys!

Thanks to JANINE for finding this funny headline!

It almost makes it sound like the teens themselves were found in the same woods they found a body. Now matter which way you read it, it's still wrong!

Agreed! Total FAIL.

I wonder if it was a headline re-edit gone awry.

If you want my opinion (and I just know you do!), the last sentence of the article is worse than the headline fail.

@ Carlos: Damn right I want your opinion! :) And yeah, you're right--that last sentence IS awful! (Good eye--for some crazy reason, that one slipped past my radar...)

Ya know, if someone had killed me in the woods, I would think that having a flotilla of hikers and searchers (ignoring their English language skills) finding my remains might help put the perp behind bars.

OK, that's not funny at all.

So maybe it was a suicide discovered by teens on their way to do community service at the local police station.
