This one might actually be quite alarming for people who don’t read a lot of newspaper (we’re looking at you, millennials). So let’s just put at ease the mind of anyone who’s worried – no, those students did not in fact cook and eat their grandparents.
They did, however, cook and then serve the food to their grandparents, as the opening of the article makes obvious. We get it, too. Sometimes headlines require a sort of newspaper shorthand, be it for reasons of brevity or space constraints. But when it makes harmless students seem like cannibals, it’s probably time to make a judgement call on taking another column inch.
