Foot in Mouth at the Guardian

Portico Books will publish Martin Toseland's "A Steroid hit the Earth: The Catastrophic World of Misprints" next month. Yesterday's Daily Mail ran a selection of them, including:

'Corrections and Clairifications', from the Guardian.

'The bride was very upset when one of her little attendants accidentally stepped on her brain and tore it' Kent Messenger

'The first aid treatment for a broken rib is to apply a tight bandage after you have made your patient expire' Manchester Evening News

'The authorities at Ongar library have received a number of complaints about a card in the index file which read: SEX: SEE LIBARIAN. This has been changed. The new entry reads: SEX: FOR SEX, ASK AT THE DESK' Eastern Gazette
