Happy Friday! Congratulations of making it through another week of social distancing! These are indeed unusual times for all of us. Why not kick off your weekend with a laugh? Below are some interesting newspaper corrections that I dug up.
Enjoy! Best Wishes for Easter and Passover!!
“In a Sunday Image article about hyaluronic acid, a skin-care ingredient and injectable filler, Dr. Nowell Solish was quoted as saying that if people change their minds after receiving an injection, there is an anecdote. It should have quoted him as saying there is an antidote.”
“There was an error printed in a story titled ‘Pigs float down the Dawson’ on Page 11 of yesterday’s Bully. The story, by reporter Daniel Burdon, said ‘more than 30,000 pigs were floating down the Dawson River’. What Baralaba piggery owner Sid Everingham actually said was ’30 sows and pigs’, not ’30,000 pigs’. The Morning Bulletin would like to apologise for this error, which was also reprinted in today’s Rural Weekly CQ before the mistake was known.”
“The candidate likes to spend his free time reading Tolstoy, and not watching Toy Story, as originally reported”
“In a recipe for salsa published recently, one of the ingredients was misstated, due to an error. The correct ingredient is ‘2 tsp. of cilantro’ istead of ‘2 tsp. of cement.”
“A headline on an item in the Feb. 5 edition of the Enquirer Bulletin incorrectly stated ‘Stolen groceries.’ It should have read ‘Homicide.’
“An April 5 story stated that Mary Fraijo did not return a reporter’s calls seeking comment. Fraijo died last December.”
“There was an error in the Dear Abby column that was published on Monday. In the fifth paragraph. the second sentence stated that Charlie’s hiccups were cured temporarily through the use of carbon monoxide. It should have read carbon dioxide.”
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
