    Don't know how old this is, but someone just sent it to me.
    Looks like the Courier-Journal needs some copy desk help.

    Unless you're Ms. Talley or a member of her family. Then, not so awesome.

    (Of course, I fully expect this to join the regular rotation of busted heds, right up there with Roasted Nuts ...)

    Most certainly did, Colton.

    That paper is a few weeks, maybe a month or so old by now.

    Bet there were jokes galore about who has been playing her back nine.

    Wasn't a headline, but a few weeks ago I saw someone really foul up the cliche "licking their wounds" in an online football preview.

    Honest to God, it said a team was through "licking their wombs" after last weeks' defeat.

    Our office had a pretty good laugh about it. When I told my wife, she that was bad enough, but suppose it was about a field hockey team?

    I'm still collecting some of these for class. Post away. Or better yet, send me links.
