Crash Blossoms, Bears, and Drinking Rockets

After reading yesterday's post about crash blossoms, reader JCR shared a link to this picture from photographer Larry Blackwood.

"I sat next to this dumpster for the longest time, never saw a single bear exit, or enter for that matter." - Larry Blackwood

And speaking of crash blossoms, here is my new favorite as posted by Language Log last week:

"Number of Lothian patients made ill by drinking rockets"

It really is hard to think of "rockets" as the main verb when parsing this sentence. And while the thought of a person chugging a glass full of rockets doesn't quite sit right, it sure is humorous.
