And it’s more written fun and games from the UK’s Daily Whoopsie…

Yet more verbatim written quotes and captions from the UK’s much-loved Daily Fail … throwing grammar, syntax, spelling, geography and even sanity to the wind as usual. Despite being owned by billionaire Viscount Rothermere it seems they still can’t afford to hire proofreaders. Never mind: it makes their website even funnier…

Funny grammar mistakes in newspaper content

No wonder the monkey peed on his shirt.

Glamorous: Stylish Mirka mastered autumnal dressing in a striking monochrome striped dress under a fitted black jacket. She added a pair of knee-high heeled books to her look. Good girl. Even better if they were books written by “moi.”

Roger and Mirka are close friends of the Federers, who were guests at both Kate and younger sister Pippa’s weddings (pictured here at Pippa’s nuptials to James Matthews in May). Roger and Mirka ARE the Federers, d*ckhead. [Read more…]

More lessons in how to write nonsense, by the UK Daily Fail

Anther cracking selection of syntax and other grammatical howlers from the UK’s favorite Malaprop Daily …

Funny caption about Donald Trump

“…a 2005 recording of the president in which he boasted about grabbing women by the p**** while he thought he was off-camera…”

Why it’s essential to proofread even when you’re in a hurry to publish…

Playful: The Eastenders star was seen to playfully cock her leg for the cameras … so did her dog, Fido.

Michaella flicked her long blonde locks on the beach as she slathered on some lotion to beat the heat … that’ll teach her to use cheap hair extensions. [Read more…]

Oh, Daily Fail, your writing has excelled itself this time

It seems like only yesterday that we shared a collection of writing whoopsies from the UK Daily Fail website and yet here we are again with another fresh crop. Enjoy. (And Daily Fail staffers feel free to take the wee-wee from our stuff on here. If you dare.)

Funny captions on the UK Daily Mail

The 19-year-old and her beau, 27, wore matching orange sweatshirts as they scooped out a Lamborghini.

Richard is a documentary maker, a book writer and has also written some books.
Do all his books come in two volumes? [Read more…]

More hilarious goofs from the UK’s Daily Fail…

As it’s coming up to the Festive Season I thought today we could have a few more laughs at some other professional writers’ boo-boos (please feel free to laugh at mine in exchange, Daily Failers.) As always the comments have been copied and pasted verbatim.

Now he’s been elected, there’ll be Hell toupée.

So … as you know, unless you have been living under a rock on the dark side of the moon for the past year or so, in the West we have been enduring a flutter of political, er, activity. Hence we start with some jestful comments about Hillary Clinton

And Clinton certainly seemed to have a penchant for statement jewelry back in the day as well, wearing several pairs of bold earrings and even a layered pearl choker.
It’s surprising that her earlobes aren’t longer than a Basset Hound‘s.

As election day looms closer Hillary ups the anti in a colour blocking blue suit in New York

This is not the first time we have howled with laughter at this popular British newspaper’s screaming bloopers, here on HTWB. And the trend continues. Enjoy …

Ooh I say! Amanda Holden has been making sure she avoids wardrobe faux pas with the use of nipple covers while presenting on This Morning
You’d think they’d have given her something a bit more substantial to keep her warm. [Read more…]
