I was just having a quick look at the Chicago Tribune news feed on my Google homepage and read this:
TRIBUNE EXCLUSIVE: Popular bassinet linked to 2 deaths
My train of (stupid) thought was, "What's a bassinet? Is that some type of musical instrument? How could a musical instrument kill someone? Maybe there's something toxic in the metal?" My excuse is that perhaps that word just isn't used down here, although I just know someone is going to come and tell me differently, and I'll have to admit being a bit slow today. It reminded me of the time in England when I saw a sign that said "Zebra Crossing" and thought perhaps I'd unwittingly wandered into a wildlife reserve.
