Thursday 13 + bonuses ~ Proofreading is a dying art


Thank you Janet and Megan for resurrecting it!
These were in a recent email and good for a laugh or two!
  1. Man Kills Self Before Shooting Wife and Daughter
  2. Something Went Wrong in Jet Crash, Expert Says (No crap, really? Ya think?)
  3. Police Begin Campaign to Run Down Jaywalkers (Now that's taking things a bit far!)
  4. Panda Mating Fails; Veterinarian Takes Over (What a guy!)
  5. Miners Refuse to Work after Death
  6. Juvenile Court to Try Shooting Defendant
  7. War Dims Hope for Peace (I can see where it might have that effect!)
  8. If Strike Isn't Settled Quickly, It May Last Awhile (Ya think?!)
  9. Cold Wave Linked to Temperatures (Who would have thought!)
  10. Enfield ( London ) Couple Slain; Police Suspect Homicide
  11. Red Tape Holds Up New Bridges (You mean there's something stronger than duct tape?)
  12. Man Struck By Lightning: Faces Battery Charge (He probably IS the battery charge!)
  13. New Study of Obesity Looks for Larger Test Group (Weren't they fat enough?!)
  14. Astronaut Takes Blame for Gas in Spacecraft (That's what he gets for eating those beans!)
  15. Local High School Dropouts Cut in Half (Chainsaw Massacre all over again!)
  16. Hospitals are Sued by 7 Foot Doctors (Boy, are they tall!)
  17. Typhoon Rips Through Cemetery; Hundreds Dead

...a dying art indeed!!! And it's frustrating when I read a good book and then stumble because of a proofreading error!!!

But, these were fun.

Thanks for the chuckles! Syntax is a funny thing indeed ;--)
Sigh! For some reason your blog won't accept my WordPress ID at the moment so I'm signing with with my Blogger ID ... but my T-13 is at Happily Retired Gal this week.
Hugs and blessings,
