good grief with grammar

http://photosunion.com/photos/Bloodrayne-03/When one reads a movie title like “Lesbian Vampire Killers,” the first thought that comes to mind should be: this is grammatically ambiguous. Are the lesbians the vampires themselves, or are the vampire killers the lesbians? Truly, the distinction is vital for a proper perception of the title. It is unlikely that such considerations were properly scrutinized by the film’s creators…or its target audience.

Honestly, it’s pretty terrible the things we waste our time on. Trashy movies, “boozing it up,” video games, personal websites…the world could be so much more loving, productive, and generally wonderful. But the difficult roads are rarely taken.

Note: CGHM does not condone vampire lesbian killing.
Also note: the previous sentence was intentionally grammatically ambiguous.
