9780091886875: It Must Be True: Classic Newspaper Howlers, Bloomers and Misprints

Denys Parsons was the undisputed king of the misprint and over the years he compiled many best-selling volumes. It Must Be True brings together the very best of these timeless clangers dredged from the daily press across the English-speaking universe from the Berkhamsted Gazette to the Bulawayo Chronicle. Including both bizarre accidents of typesetting and delightful editorial bungles, most of the mishaps bring a hilarious unintentional new meaning, while others allow an inspired breed of nonsense to reign for a brief but glorious moment.

From the Inside Flap:

A compilation of newspaper misprints from the press of the English-speaking world. Typos and editorial bungles bring about unintentionally hilarious new meanings.
