For want of a hyphen

OK, it's not the best noun pileup of the week, because it has a verb and an object and all, but don't you just sort of wish you could sneak in and hyphenate it a little bit?

It helps to know the story in advance, and the lede does a reasonable job of explaining:

A British man and woman jailed in Dubai for kissing in public have lost their appeal against their conviction.

... but you're still left wishing for the hed that could have been written from the last graf:

In 2008, two Britons accused of having sex on a beach in Dubai were sentenced to three months in jail, though the sentences were later suspended.

Inkissingcredible, huh?
