Headline Howler: How do you make a tension swirl?

It defies the laws of physics, if I’m not mistaken. But shhhh, don’t tell that to the AP:

Venezuela on Saturday accused 60 Colombian soldiers of illegally entering its territory, as tensions over Venezuela’s alleged effort to aid Colombian guerrillas swirl.

Well, at least they got the “alleged” part right. It’s an allegation, it’s only an allegation, and in the end, an allegation is all it will ever turn out to be. But I’m still trying to visualize a tension swirling, and all I get is a headache. Definitely a bad trip. This is much easier:

Visualize whirled peas, it's easier

Could we do that, please?
