Is it just me...

...or does this headline read as if somewhere Julia Child's body is encased in glass and on display, similar in fashion to the Hall of Heads* on Futurama:

Julia Child enshrined in women's hall of fame.




*The only good picture I could find online was on a French site, pardonnez-moi.

Musee Des Tetes! You are completely right about that headline - it's a bit icky sounding.

Shari said...

LOL! Yes, it does sound like that.

Becky said...

nope. It's not just you... that's a terrible headline. :)

"Enshrined" is a creepy word. Are there Julia-devotees praying in some Julia-grotto? Even Futurama heads would be less creepy than that.

Awful, awful headline! Honestly, if it struck us as odd, didn't it strike the writer as odd and creepy too?

I agree with Veronica, the word "enshrined" is a little weird.
