Quotable Headline

Ok, so I just read this news story that made me laugh. It was about three dogs that discovered a baby that had been abandoned by her mother in India, and barked until people came and discovered her.

It's a case of a sad story with a (somewhat) happy ending, but that's not what made me laugh. It was the headline:

Dogs "rescue" girl abandoned by mother

It was that use of quotes around "rescue". In my crazy mind, I finished out the headline as such:

Dogs "rescue" girl abandoned by mother
(and by "rescue", we meant "eat")

Sick and twisted I know, but I wasn't the one who decided quotes were necessary.

You know, some days, being "eaten" might feel like the best rescue possible. (And by "eaten," I mean devoured, clean off the bones.)

I hope that didn't sound too dark or scary.

I got nothing but "LOL."
