Newspaper Advert Misprints & Misquotes

It's fascinating and fun to spot misprints and misquotes in newspapers and magazines. Also, its surprising how often adverts become unintentionally funny, because the writer did not realize the reader might take a different meaning from the one intended.

By the way, any mistakes on this site are intentional (and if you believe that you'll believe anything). So have fun reading these unintentionally funny adverts, stories and news reports.
