Won The Award - And Then Left (Or Lost His Job)

I was very sorry to read that poor Rudy apparently lost his job after receiving the award.
This is from a company newsletter. I guess we can't expect them to be as dedicated and perfect as a professional newspaper - oh wait - the newspapers are no longer dedicated and professional. It should be easy to improve upon what I've seen published by the (ahem) professionals.

I can't credit the submission for this one. The submitter fears recrimination and job loss. With this economy - I'm not taking any chances.

Spell check is indicating that each occurence of the word professional is incorrectly spelled, as well as the word recrimination. So now I have to rag on the spell check??!

I'll Get My Funding Elsewhere, Thank You

This appeared on a piece of junk mail that we received the other day.

Note that it is from a company that wants to help you fund your child's education.

Apparently they were not able to fund their own education.

The city is actually Charlotte, NC.

Names Have Been Removed to Protect the Innocent

And heads have been chopped off as well. It's not this woman's fault that the newspaper caption writer is an idiot. I'd say that it's the fault of the editor, but I truly believe that editors have gone the way of the dodo bird.

And what? How can they leave us hanging like that? I have a right to know! Maybe it's a 'tune in tomorrow' type thing. Are cliff hangers now a daily feature to keep readers coming back for more?

It won't work , I tell you. It just won't work.
