No laughing matter…

Mistakes happen. Twenty years on I still remember the Editor’s Hairdrier I got for leaving the letter ‘l’ out of a front page news story on public rail works, and I have (occasionally) felt a little swell of gratitude for Microsoft Word after its suggestions saved my blushes.
But this little slip was too good not to save and – now that some months have passed – share. It’s from one of my local weekly papers and it did make me smile…

 …Which is more than can be said for George’s leg, I guess.
