Headlines That Definitely Should Have Been Poofed…er…Proofed!
We’ve all seen typos in the newspaper and realize how important proofreading is. Once something is printed, it’s too late to change it. Last week in the local paper I noticed a Christmas event advertisement that mistakenly referred to the “manger animals” as “manager animals”. See? One little mistake can change the whole meaning. Recently I ran across some headlines that should have been proofread, or at least proofed better, and had to share them. This site holds a lot more but here are a few for some laughs:
PANDA MATING FAILS: VETERINARIAN TAKES OVER
POLICE BEGIN CAMPAIGN TO RUN DOWN JAYWALKERS
WAR DIMS HOPE FOR PEACE
COLD WAVE LINKED TO TEMPERATURES
ASTRONAUT TAKES BLAME FOR GAS IN SPACECRAFT.
