Headlines can have double meanings

Recently, a New York Times article turned up on my RSS feed. The title? So Far, Our New Pricing Strategy Is Working.

I figured that it was awfully bold for the New York Times to claim that its paywall was working, especially when so many people were successfully circumventing it.

Then I read the article, and I realized that it wasn't talking about the pricing strategy of the New York Times. It was talking about a restaurant that had decided to offer prix fixe service.

Next, the Huffington Post will run a story talking about a company that is allied with a tired old Internet company.
