I was foiled by two different headlines this week.
The first was about the Montreal Canadiens. The headline read: Canadiens can coach Carbonneau.
I read it and thought to myself "I don't get it...how can a team coach a coach?" Then I read the story and found out that the team fired the coach. As in he got canned. And then I felt dumb.
The second was on the BBC health site and read: Migraines increase pregnancy risk. Well this I had to read. Migraines make you more fertile? What? Then I read it and found out that if you suffer from migraines, you are more likely to have a stroke during pregnancy. (and if you are a migraine sufferer and don't feel like reading the story, don't worry, the risk of stroke during pregnancy even with migraines is really quite low)
So my question is: am I just dumb or were those headlines poorly written? I'd like to think they were poorly written, but I fear that maybe I'm just having a bit of a slow brain week. Maybe I have a migraine coming on?
