A state film commissioner's interesting twist of words --
Melanie Griffith will return to the silver screen in “Miss Cannabis,” a movie about a woman who loses her riches and moves onto a medical marijuana farm.

From "Spindrift," a great song by Rush. These fews lines illustrate the theme of the album, which lyricist and drummer Neil Peart described with an allusion to Robert Frost: "a lover's quarrel with the world." Listen closely and you'll figure out he's probably not addressing a lover but rather people with a different worldview from his own.

The Coastal Northwest is overdue for complete destruction by earthquake and the resulting tsunami. Scientists know it's a matter of when, not if.

Documents reveal the popular pastor Doug Wilson -- sparring partner with the late Christopher Hitchens in the documentary "Collision" -- blamed a girl's father for the crime committed against the girl, even when one of Wilson's own students was the perpetrator. Wilson is all about punishing the father of the victim but won't accept responsibility for his failed leadership of a young man turned sexual assaulter.

This 1888 news brief just strikes me as a bit peculiar.
TwistedSpeech.com captures amusing and outrageous uses of the English language in news media, advertising, politics, and pop culture.
