Welcome to another installment of The Door of Shame, Blame and Brilliance, a weekly feature highlighting some of the most memorable newspaper moments clipped and taped to our newsroom door by journalists since as far back as 1970.
The Door’s objective is to be a beacon, guiding us into the jagged rocks of journalism.
Today’s entry was posted two years ago, by yours truly, after spotting it in the Los Angeles Times. The headline illustrates why — on many levels — I prefer to watch sports on television…

Amusingly awful, so bad in fact, that one wonders if it was intentional.
I have to think so. I mean, come on — no one noticed THAT?!
Great. Just great.
I’m wondering if this one was deliberate. LOL!
I’m thinking someone HAD to have noticed that, even if it started out as an accident. I mean seriously, I can’t tell you how many times we almost printed headlines with “Pubic Meeting” in them; how could this “slip” by?!
Another reason to smile this morning….I needed that!! 🙂
So glad I could help 🙂 I hope your day gets better!!
Thanks! I have a four-day weekend coming up, so at least there is something to look forward to!! 😀
That’s just great! 🙂
Intentional or not, that headline took a lot of courage 🙂
This had me laughing since my reader page!
If it was intentional, it took a lot of cajones; if it was accidental, they really need a proofreader. In either case, I’m sure whoever approved it found work somewhere…
This is cracking me up! I need a door of shame here at my house…
That can be arranged…
So the Rangers. They… Stink?
LOL! Either that, or they just had a team proctology exam…
Another great one!
Thanks, Betsy 🙂
LOL! Just the laugh I needed a day with car repair bills. Thank you for popping by my blog so I could find yours. 😀
Sorry about the bills, but glad we “found” each other and could share a laugh 🙂 Thanks for stopping in!
By the way, is your tag about “hold this up to a toaster to read” referring to the ancient art of lemon juice and toothpick invisible secret agent writing? If so, very cool. If not, I need to go find a toaster…
there is no end in sight. )
Unless maybe you’re a proctologist… 😉
A real editor would have reduced the font and gone with: “Rangers get a whiff of the Angel’s Colon.”
I’m sure that would have made it onto a door somewhere in the Vatican…
Ned I remember many years ago when i was jr High there was a commercial on for a car dealership. They said what most of them say. “Come on down sitton buick used cars cars. blah blah balh” and then at the very end they said were talking about their prices, when they said “y’all bring the wife down here and lets dicker” Great clip man
My name is Mrs Fever, and I *LIKE* this comment. 😀
Hahaha! Couldn’t get away with that now! Well, maybe on cable…
