Scientist is giving an interview: “We found a way to kill 75% of cancer cells in mice”.
Newspaper headlines next morning: “Scientists found a cure for cancer”.
Scientist read that and calls the interviewer again next day and is like “no no, I didn’t mean that we can cure cancer now. It just means that our developments can help cure it in the future“.
Newspaper headlines next day: “Scientists discover time travel”
Enraged scientist calls the journalist again and screams: “FUCK YOU!”
Newspaper headlines: “Scientist rapes a journalist!”
(Not an original, but the recent frontpage joke here reminded me of it.)
