Tussled vs. Tousled

So, I just thought I'd replicate this photo of Zac Efron, courtesy of the Onion News Network...

Ahem. Actually, I have an excuse for this behavior. And that excuse is called "the difference between tussled and tousled." That difference being that right now this headline says the Onion editors intend to launch a full-blown assault upon the scruff in question, rather than simply rumple it while cooing softly, as they presumably intended. You have been warned.

Sometimes I wonder how folks get past the editors for columns...

His hair is so very unruly, it must be tussled with.

Remind me to tell you sometime about the hate mail I got because one of my columns went to print with "Zac Ephron" in the copy.

Oooh, dangerous. That's how I would have spelled it too, though, if I hadn't been copying it directly from that picture.
