If You’re Going to Publish, PLEASE Call Your Friendly Editor!

One of my writers’ group friends forwarded this headline to me today:

Woman with fun in bra arrested

A convicted felon has been arrested by police in a Phoenix suburb after telling officers that she was hiding a handgun in her bra. By: Associated Press report, Arizona Republic 

I don’t think any more needs to be said.

    Oh man! Is it so hard to PROOFREAD?

      This sort of thing *almost* makes you wonder whether the proofreader snickered and turned a blind eye. 😉 Or maybe they had to lay off their proofreaders and now rely only on Word’s spelling and grammar check.

    Hmm. So many jokes come immediately to mind, and all of them quite inappropriate. I think you’re right: the less said here, the better…

      Yes, exactly! Although, I admit, I did further explore the possibilities for humor in the email conversation with my writers’ group. I probably shouldn’t blab it all here, though. 😉
