This week's Comedy Goldmine is all about making mistakes. Often times we hear things on TV or in the news that we plain just don't get or we misconstrue as meaning something else entirely. The Something Awful Forum goons, led by the infamous Dr.Eldarion, have illustrated this phenomenon expertly in their thread, "Misheard Items from the News." Enjoy, you poor saps. And be careful; some of these puns are deadly. Deadly like something that will KILL YOU.

I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
