Amusing thread titles

Lately I've spotted a number of threads with titles that have amused me because of the alternative ways that they can be interpreted.

Here are some of my favourites.

toasting errors

iMac fan goes crazy

disappointed with oblivion

I invite you to do one of two things - share your own favourites or make a post to fit one of the thread titles I've listed.

I should add that no offence to the OPs is intended, I'm just having a bit of fun with the wonder of the English language.

Over to you...

I always think a lot of the thread titles should be answered, or agreed with.

Yes you are crazy/nuts.

But the "iMac fan goes crazy" left me wondering what nutty thing the iMac owner did in his crazy spree.

Going on a Cruise with my MBP

Now, I like my Mac as much as the next guy, but that's a little too far. Are you going to finish it off by getting down on one knee and popping the question?

I kind of enjoyed the Hummers why? thread title. My immediate response was that they feel good, and if she's willing, then why not?

Thats what I thought...

But yeah, all the ones we've mentioned so far, and the odd (Don't last very long) 'Look here for tits' then a question about a MacBook... It's genius.

I can't find it now, but there was a thread titled something like "Jobs at Apple Store" and I (and a bunch of others) interpreted it to mean that Steve Jobs was seen visiting one of the Apple retail stores, in fact, it was someone inquiring about employment at an apple store. I was disappointed.

I'm always trying to refrain from a smarta** answer from some titles that I read.

i.e.

Is it just me...?

yes, it is.


How to make macbook run faster

run her through more sprint drills


Backwards, why are email addresses

invented that way they were


Now that you've started this, I'll be adding to it quite often.

I like to make a thread title amusing whenever I can.

This one is still current: Anna Nicole Smith is dead again.

I think 90% of thread titles can be misinterpreted.
