“So many people in my area have head lice. The positive side is, we are a close nit community”

A pun on the term ”close-knit community” was posted on Twitter on August 28, 2011:

“I live in a really small village where everybody suffers terribly with head lice.. Its a close nit community.”

The error of “close-nit” for “close-knit” is very frequent.

The downside of living in my area is that many have head lice. The positive side is we are a close nit community.
