Adventures In Misreading

Maybe I've been on-line too long -- four and a half hours, catching up on what I missed while out of town -- but I found this single-line paragraph (beginning a post by Natalie Solent) quite confusing:

Junius is one today.

My first thought was "one what?" The rest of the post didn't seem to help, so I scrolled down to the previous one. Was she saying that Junius is a Japanese singing superhero with a sauce receptacle for a head? That didn't seem likely. Still confused, I scrolled up to the following post, which is about "rotten pulpy slugs" and the effects of salting them and jumping up and down on them. Is she saying Junius is a slug? I certainly hope not. Finally, I clicked on the link in the confusing post and found that Junius is one year old, at least in blog-years.

I think I'd better log off for a while and maybe read a book or something.

That certainly was a very bleary post.

But curious and diverting. Particularly in regards the treatment of degraded slugs.
