You’re doing it wrong

The other day, while standing in line at the grocery store, I saw an issue of the Weekly World News. I’ve never read an issue of it, but it’s one of those tabloids that routinely has headlines like “Your pet may be an extraterrestrial” or ” “The ghost of Elvis is living in my den.” (Oh wait, that’s the Midnight Star).

So anyway, this issue’s headline was something like “Former Vice-President Dick Cheney abducted by extraterrestrials and forced to give up torturing secrets.” The picture that accompanied the headline featured an obviously doctored photo of Cheney inside some kind of alien torture device. The look on Cheney’s face looked like “You call this water boarding?”

But really, did who ever write that not see the weirdness in torturing someone to get their torturing secrets?
