Ignorminious on Illiterate Newspaper Editors

Posted on Monday 23rd October 2006 at 00:00
I've just come back from town where I saw one of those newspaper advertisement headline things with the following written as today's big headline:

MAN HIT
BY NIGHT
BUS DIES



If it wasn't for the tragedy of the actual story which is about a bloke who crashed his car into a bus at night and was killed, the story about the man who got hit by the night at the same time as a bus died would be well worth a chuckle over me thinks! What I don't understand is why no one printing the sign or the headline actually picked up on this. I guess that's Bristolians for you though.

In other news, I was stood in the queue at Woolworths (I'll explain why in my next post) earlier and there was a bloke stood very close behind me who appeared to be snoring despite being awake. Every time I shuffled forward in an attempt to stop him from snoring all over the back of my neck, he'd start coughing all over it instead and shuffle forwards so that he was a couple of inches behind me again.

The locals in this town are truly weird.
