DOEP (Daily Open-Ended Puzzle) (Intermittent): Reframing the news

Here are the lead articles from USA Today, and their evil twin reframings.

Your open-ended challenge: Reframe one of today’s headlines.

(By the way, if you’re wondering why I’m doing these quizzes instead of actual blogging, I am heads down revising my book, so I’m feeling sort of pressed. Plus, for the past couple of days I’ve been at meetings I’m not allowed to blog about.) [Tags: ]

  1. Only one? Bummer. I picked (almost randomly):

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Army is showing growing signs of strain as it tries to sustain troop levels in Iraq and Afghanistan, including stress on soldiers, lower unit readiness, equipment shortfalls and money worries.

    reframed:
    WASHINGTON (Someone) – The U.S. Army challenges terrorists to a one-to-one with most of their arms tied behind them.

  2. Oh, I love games. I’ll play.

    Original:

    Reframed:
