Deadlock delays start of Iraq Parliament Meeting

maybe because i feel guilty about missing this weekends PROD and Ministry of Unsound I totally misread this Reuters news headline:

Deadlock delays start of Iraq Parliament Meeting

Initially, it conjured up images of crowds of Iraqi deputies turning up late for work cos they’d all stayed to the end of an extended killer set from Deadlock. Then, sensing that there was something wrong with this picture I considered that maybe Deadlock himself was an Iraqi deputy, but I’m sure I’d have heard about this.

Finally, I realised my mistake, but not before noticing that I could easily make the same error again..
