Proofreading is a dying art, wouldn't  you say?

This one I caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this.  It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!!  They put in a correction the next day.    
I just couldn't help but send this along. Too funny.

LOL! So good to start the day with a smile, Sylvia. Thank you.

That's what happens if you employ journalists who passed their courses with supplementary exams...

Jack said...

A very funny list, Sylvia. I can imagine that several of these would get past the proofreaders. But not eagle-eyed readers like you and me!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

These are even funnier read aloud (as I just did to Bill)! Thanks.

I don't know whether to sympathize with the vet or not.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
