Last of the Misprints

Here we go again with the last few errors in print that I've collected over the years.

From Parade Magazine 7-5-97. The USS STARK had just been hit by an Iraqi attack and here's the picture:

Comment: The ship is listing to STARBOARD not port! Having spent some time on one or two of these ships and others, I think I know port from starboard. My wife may disagree on that, though.

The Arizona Republic 1/17/88:

Comment: Looks like a PIG to me! And I do know pigs from lambs no matter what my wife says..

From the Sun City Independent 10/8/2002:

Comment: This should get the audience excited - "presenting a one-act LAY."

The Phoenix Gazette 2/8/1979:

Headline: Organizing Time Subject Of Unusual Course

Excerpt: "Two years of studies indicate that persons utilizing Time Bank techniques increase their productivity as mjuch as 50 percent, according to Ron Huber, owner of Time Systems, Inc. of Phoenix.

     "People who manage their time more efficiently are appreciated by their employers and receive higher salaries in many cases," he added.

     "Relieving nervous tension during decision-making is another aim of the program.

     "I have been feeling much better about myself and my nob since I've been using the Time Bank techniques. Now, I have a much clearer picture about what I need to handle each day," said Dave Bos, manager of personnel administration for . . . . . . ."

Comment, if I can stop laughing long enough:  Maybe he can pass his technique on to the other employees. I would recommend he receive a raise, of course.
And the last one that was in The Daily News-Sun July 2, 2016, last Saturday:

This was an advertisement with the headline, Do You Have Trouble Falling Asleep and Staying Asleep?

Excerpt:  "If you are Female 55 and older or Male 65 and older and have had difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep for at least l month, you may be eligible to participate in a study for a new Investigational drug for INSOMNIA."

Comment: I don't think I wouldn't need the drug if I stayed "asleep for at least 1 month." They would have a heck of a time waking me up. Who am I, Rip Van Winkle?

That's all, folks!


  1. But do you know your port from an ale? :)

    1. That could pose a problem, Charles.

  2. Love the look of that woolly market lamb. Also believe all should feel good about their nob. Not often does something make me laugh out loud, but that one did. Thanks for today's smiles. (:-)
