More Newspaper Headlines

Don't read these if you're in a hurry, you need a second to consider what
they are really saying. Funny!

     * Grandmother of eight makes hole in one
     * Deaf mute gets new hearing in killing
     * Police begin campaign to run down jaywalkers

opposite from the one intended:

     * Nicaragua sets goal to wipe out literacy
     * Drunk drivers paid $1,000 in 1984
