1. A funeral director emailed through a death notice yesterday for publication in today's paper. When the deceased has been in the armed forces, the details of their rank, unit, and so on are printed after their name. According to the funeral director, this chap had been in the 22nd Machine Fun Battalion! I picked it up before it went to print, but I sort of wish I hadn't. "What did Grandad do in the Army?" "He had machine fun!"
2. I have an unfortunate tendency, when finishing emails, to lose home row and write, "Regardsm Akky". Lots of my customers have had a Regardsm Akky, but none of them are as lucky as one of Andrea's clients, who got a "Warm Retards." Better than cold ones!
3. I typed up a property ad for last Saturday's paper - the headings were "MERIVALE" and "OPEN HOME", but while I was typing it up I was obviously on google chat or writing an email and became confused, because this is what printed:
It's like the house is saying Hello! new owners!
Amazingly, I haven't heard from the real estate agent. Maybe she liked it too.
In other news, if anyone knows whether or not the huge For Lease billboard on (I think) Blenheim Road is intentionally funny, can you let me know? It says EXPOSE YOURSELF HERE and I am tempted to get a group together and go and do just that.
