Long before Leno, there were paperback books of newspaper bloopers that included at least one quote from a paper I was working on at the time. The reporter wrote, “The driver swerved to avoid missing the pedestrian,” and the copy editor managed to miss the mistake.
Ever since then, I am always looking for bloopers and juxtapositions. An example of the latter surfaced recently at a softball/baseball field where I noticed a sign saying ‘Foul Ball Area/Park At Your Own Risk” right next to a sign noting that particular spot was also for handicapped parking.
I suspect Leno would have had more than a few comments wondering why a person allowed to park in such a spot should be allowed to assume a higher risk of foul balls.
I know many HVACR technicians would love to be able to park vans closer to job sites only to have to deal with no-parking zones or handicapped restrictions. But in the case of this particular field, at least they would avoid a possible broken windshield by parking a bit further away.
