The Weird Herald needs a proofreader

Out local newspaper is pathetic, just pathetic.   These were in the obituarites just today.  (Don’t even go there.  I already read the obituaries.)

Young, Jeffrey (Memoriam)

All family and friends are welcome.I’m thinking maybe both of these should have been under Life Care Center of Elkorn – especially since both of these ladies also had obituaries under their names.   D’oh!

I know there was another typo in one of these, but now I can’t find it.  Geez people.   This is the LAST thing this family has to remember these people, could you possibly get this right?

  1. Oh my….you should send those in to Jay Leno.

  2. It must be so utterly depressing to work in one of these hospitals/hospices

    Those of you that do, are saints

    Was that in the physical paper or the online edition? There is a lot of crap in the online edition. The online one messed up my wedding announcement, throwing a hyphen in the middle of my one word last name. The printed edition was fine.

    Watch out for their online edition, it sometimes has pop-up ads that include spyware and somehow pop up even when you have a blocker on.

  4. The onlin edition. I use my wok computer Better security than my home computer!

    Hey Min, I think you need a proofreader…”onlin” has an “e” at the end and I didn’t know you had a “wok” computer! Har! I crack myself up!

  7. Bitchsister – Shut up.
