Unfortunate Obituary Typo

Yes, I read the obituary section of the paper sometimes, motherfuckers. SB admits that shit. It's a morbid habit I have. The typo I found this morning made me laugh.

Bea was preceded in death by her husband who died Oct. 11, 2007, one son, Mark Adrian Elston, her parents, grandson, Jeremy, and brother, Dale. She is survived by four sons: Verl George Jr. (Kathleen), Corin Lynn (Nadine), Ralph Wilbur (Barbara), and James Alan (Gena), one bother, Al, 16 grandchildren, 45 great- grandchildren, and two great- great-grandchildren.

DTG,
I have one bother myself. He is a damn yuppie. I am a damn hippy. But I love him anyway.

Have a great weekend. Hug your mama for me.

Love, SB.

Maybe they meant that! Al was always a pain in the ass..

Lou,
Yeah, perhaps that shit was intentional. It did cross my warped and sorry mind.

Love,

SB

Good catch. I read that shit like 3 times and couldn't find it.

Obituaries in UK newspapers always start with either 'suddenly' or 'peacefully'.
We used to play a game during night shifts where you pick one of the above and go through the obits. Whoever gets the most wins.
