Some amusing newspaper mistakes and juxtapositions that have appeared in print:

·        We all know that aging is a fact of life but it doesn’t have to be a death sentence.

·        The former Labour minister leading the campaign compared the Chancellor to Mrs Rochester, the man woman in Charles Dickens’ novel Jane Eyre.

·        John Fielding was Henry Fielding’s blind half-brother, not half-blind brother as earlier stated (from a correction that was printed).

·        Chemise and matching French knockers.

·        He was hell-bent on becoming a priest.


Newspapers pride themselves on producing tight literal copy but even they get it wrong somethimes:

‘Marijuana issue sent to a joint committee’

 ‘Something went wrong in jet crash, experts say.’

 ’Clinton wins budget; more lies ahead.’

 ‘Some 40% of female gas station employees on Metro are women’

‘The Low-Self Esteem Group will meet Thursday from 7.00-8.00pm. Please use the back door.’

‘Free Yorkshire Terrier. 8 years old. unpleasant little dog’

‘Nice parachute never opened used once slightly stained.’

‘Free: farm kittens. ready to eat’

‘For sale: Lee Majors (6 million dollar man)$50.’
