Spotted in tomorrow's newspaper
(And yes, I mean tomorrow's newspaper: I'm proofreading the page right now.)
I know that technically, there's nothing wrong with these two paragraphs, but it just seems to me that the wording of the last sentence here could have been better chosen:
A free showing of “Super Size Me” will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23 at the Auburn Library, 350 Nevada St. It is presented by The Health Spine-Wellness Centers.
The film will be followed by a brief discussion on health and diet. Snacks will be provided.

Update - I cheerfully admit defeat. I have been outdone:

[21:47] kadyg: That's almost as good as "drinks will be provided" in the Breastfeeding Workshop notice that we keep running.

Current Mood: amusedamused
Current Music: Jim Hinde, "Frank, Dennis and Me"

And here's an odd headline from yesterday's Chronicle:

Many Texas schools fall short of 'no child' goals

Best one I ever got, about the menu at a benefit dinner:

"Vegetarian option: fish."

I called up the woman who sent in the notice, who laughed, commisserated, and called the chef to check. "It must be a mistake," she said.

It wasn't. The chef really thought fish was ok.
