Headline of the day

From the Boston Herald: “Dog faces electric cuff after being collared.”

Are they really going to zap the poor pooch? Uh, no. You see, there’s this guy named Duane “Dog” Chapman, who’s in trouble for something or other.

No again. Whoever wrote the headline meant “electronic,” not “electric.”

I’ll spot them the “Dog,” since Chapman is apparently pretty well known in some circles. But “electric”? Come on.
