    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 sending this along. Too funny.

    Thanks for the laugh.

    Once I was typing a menu for a colleagues restuarant. One of the items on the menu was Mince Pies. I had finished the typing and was copying the menu when he saw it and said "I dont think we will sell too many Mice Pies"

    I had left the n out of mince. :oops:
