Description
From the sublime to the ridiculous, this is a hilarious collection of typographical errors, slips of the pen, and embarrassing misprints that—like any typo—should never have happened, cannot be excused, would best be forgotten, and on no account should be held up for entertainment. The again, why not? Meet great figures from history: Sir Francis Drake (who "circumcised the world in a small ship"), Queen Victoria (who "pissed graciously over the Menai Bridge"), and Rambo (the famous French poet). Encounter moral instruction: ("Blessed are the meek, for they shall irrigate the earth") and pearls of wisdom ("love is just a passing fanny"). And read between the headlines: "Breaking News: Obama Bin Laden Dead" (Fox News), and "This is America and our only lanaguage is English" (anti-immigrant protest sign).
