crash blossoms

Mark Peters over at Good has an article on crash blossoms, confused readings of poorly worded/punctuated newspaper headlines. As in: “Violinist linked to JAL crash blossoms,” a story about a violinist whose career took off after his plane didn’t. Crash blossoms are like snowclones, eggcorns, mondegreens, and the Cupertino effect.
