Well, it’s been quite a week for me in the newspapers!
First the Scotsman, and then (on Wednesday) The Herald’s diary pages, with the following gem.
Our story about the Australian newspaper apologising for stating 30,000 pigs were drowned in the flooding when the farmer had in fact said “30 sows and pigs” reminds Iain Nisbet in Govan: “When I was a toddler my grandfather once won £10 by sending my version of The Grand Old Duke of York into a magazine. In my version, the Duke had ‘ten cows and men’. He did of course, pass the money onto me.”
Ha, very humorous indeed and an easy mistake to make!
