From a Web site:
“Jennifer Aniston made headlines the world over last November, when she finally broke her silence about ex-husband Brad Pitt's ladylove, Angelina Jolie. But Brad bares no ill will."
What does he not bare? (To bare, in this case, means to reveal, as in "to bare his teeth.")
Oh, he bears no ill will. Good for him, but shame on the writer of this sentence.
