Perhaps We Should Contain Our Metaphors

This lede is from the bleedin' Economist, no less:

A hedge fund stalks subprime's next potential victim

If you got the part about how the bond insurer is the "victim" of "subprime" but is being "stalked" by a hedge fund, you probably got that part of The Queen where it turns out that Diana was a buck.

I'm surprised and stunned.
