An interesting headline on a news Web site:
"Men don't cheat because their wives are ugly"
You can read this in two ways. The way it was intended:
"Ugly wives do not cause men to cheat"
The other way:
"Men don't cheat; the reason is their wives are ugly"
The first time you read the headline, which way did you read it?
