Tiger Woods, 5 strokes, 69...? Nope, not some weird golf fanfic--it's Hump Day Grammar.



Someone was either really clever or really innocently oblivious when creating this headline.  They couldn't have possibly made this Tiger Woods headline sound any dirtier!  And yes, this is an actual news article by a reputable news organization--not the latest headline on TMZ or some smutty sports-related fanfic!

The grammar's fine, really, but the way it was written...well, I couldn't help using it for Hump Day.  Thanks to DENNY for spotting this headline!

I noticed this, as well. I couldn't stop giggling for quite some time.

Carlos, I *am* bad! :) And Jon, that headline was totally giggle-worthy. Do you guys think the writer was oblivious to how pervy it sounded...or wrote it that way on purpose?

I vote for oblivious, since that seems to be the way of our culture these days. :-)
