Did you jump to a conclusion?

It has been about ten years, but there used to be a local band named "DOS GUYS." There were three ways one could take this:

  • DOS Guys meaning 2 guys from "dos," Spanish for two.
  • DOS Guys as a way of saying "those" guys, "dos" as a slang way of saying "those."
  • DOS Guys, meaning guys who were still using the DOS operating system on their computer.

Is there something that could be interpreted more than one way? Have you "jumped" on one interpretation that may be the wrong one? It may be that you are creating your own brick wall by doing so.
