the CORPSES

As I was passing by the local charity shop today, a book in the window caught my eye. The cover featured a black and white photo of a few fairly thin women and a guy. It was the title that really drew my attention.

the CORPSES

'That's a bit harsh,' I thought. 'They're a bit on the skinny side, but calling them corpses seems a bit OTT.'

I re-read the title. It didn't say CORPSES; it said CORRS. Oops. I looked at the photo again. Sure enough, it was the girls and their brother. They are thin ladies, though. I wonder if their lack of bulk influenced my the mis-reading? Is there such a thing as a visual Freudian slip?
