Friday Fun

(Woohoo! I'm so thrilled for Joannie Rochette and her bronze medal!)

Words are such fun. And it can be hilarious when their placement has an unintended meaning. One of my daily must-reads is author Angela Hunt's blog. This week she's been sharing some headlines and article excerpts that make one wonder if copy editors are now extinct. Some of my favorites are below.

Remedial math, anyone?!

Your one-stop shop!

Wonder how much they charge for this!

The definition of denial!

Now I know where to wear all my old bridesmaid dresses!

I wonder whose side he'll represent!

That's some powerful paint!

And I don't remember whose blog I saw this on, but I thought it must be rigged. Until I did a Google search and found the actual article in the newspaper online! (Besides, a child's honesty is funnier than anything an adult could make up!)

In the article, the boy says:
“I wouldn’t do it again,” the second-grader said as he spun nickels on a tabletop while his sister, Meghan, related the story. “She’s been a pain this week.”
Hindsight is always 20/20!!

Enjoy your day!

Fun stuff. I like seeing funny signs, headlines, etc. Our local news showed a sign at a church that said "Whoever is praying for snow, please stop." I got a chuckle out of that.
