Great Moments in Editing


We've made it halfway through March, and I think we've earned another round of Great Moments in Editing, don't you?

Where the discriminating cannibals shop ...


I wonder if he read the last item before he made the decision to turn Amish ...


Well, I guess it's truth in advertising ...


Must be the latest thing in physical therapy ...


Evidently the spelling award wasn't one of them ...


When musicians fall out ...


Police blotters are often very interesting ...


It'll keep the pros busy between executions ...


No, the OTHER left! ...


Another unfortunate juxtaposition of headlines ...


And there you have it ... your biweekly fix of editorial gems, odd signage, and general abuse of the language. Something to take your mind off the political circus that's making us a laughingstock around the world.

Have a good day and come back tomorrow for Cartoon Saturday, your favorite guilty pleasure. More thoughts then.

I wonder how much would be paid for being a "hanging pro"....a job for you in retirement.

Nude Amish?

I'm glad that the guy takes responsibility for his own duets.

Great occasions when the editor missed it!

Love the Turn Left; hysterical! Thanks, as always, Bilbo.

I hope other languages have similar editing issues. I'd hate to think we're the only ones.

The Bastard King of England said...

Are the peaches from Georgia, California? And I'm proud of the guy who owns up to his duets.

What a dreadful juxtaposition between the article and the ad with the "Going out with a bang" caption.
