Folks I just got this in from a buddy of mine. I think it is worthy of a Friday funny here. Enjoy!





































































































































































Proofreading
is a Dying Art

(actually,
it’s a DEAD
art!)

















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

Man
Kills Self
Before
Shooting Wife
and Daughter

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.

    It is a dying "art". I try to proof read here on SH but I miss things sometimes. But if it's something important that I'm typing I read it over and over and maybe even have someone else read it if it's going out to someone.

    It is amazing at what actually does make it into print sometimes -- especially funny since it is written by people who are actually "paid" to write or compose the news articles. funny news stories

    Miss Texasred many thanks for coming. I'm glad you liked it. Yeah, it's pretty amazing all right. I can't believe the folks that are supposed to be screening this kind of stuff have let these kinds of articles slip past them. It sure makes for entertaining reading though.

    The only one that has more arrogance than the liberal establishment is Obama. What amazes me is that they don't have anything to be arrogant about.
