Bloopers in the press

I was just reading in the Los Angeles Times where the FBI was investigating Russia/Trump campaign "collision". I think they meant to say collusion.

FRiend, I think this is a good idea for a thread. We should all be on the lookout for these.

I remember seeing something just last week that was clearly a good, but now I can't remember what it was.  :(

Just about the time I was starting college, my home town newspaper had a couple of really good ones.

The first headline was "Pot is the Heart of Winter Cookery." (I sent that to The New Yorker, and they paid me for it, but I don't remember how much.)

The other headline said something about a new bishop being "concentrated," instead of "consecrated."

Not with my memory.  :(

Oh, I shall keep my eyes open for a  blooper!


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!
