Garden path sentence of the day

First of all, if you're not familiar with what a garden path sentence is, go read the Wikipedia article on them.

Now that that's out of the way... this was an actual headline in today's issue of USA Today (though interestingly, it was reworded in the web version), of which I've reproduced the spacing exactly as it appeared in the paper:

Obama's ad
buys dwarf
TV presence
of McCain

I had to read that two or three times before I realized it had nothing to do with little people starring in Obama ads.
