A Dumb Headline

"More Canadians Plan to Get Shot: Poll"

What, are they planning a Mexican vacation?

Perhaps they're planning to take a midnight stroll thru the streets of Toronto?

Perhaps they're planning to visit Chicago?

Why couldn't the headline writer simply add a three-letter word between "get" and "shot", ie. "FLU"?


Update: They changed the headline. Good for 'em.

It now says, "More Canadians plan flu shots, says poll".

Perhaps they read my post?

Note to self: Always do a "screengrab" when funny headlines get published!
