Monkeying around with typos and headlines...


Red Pen, Inc. reader TOM G. sent in this picture, which just might be the funniest reader submission I've received all week. TOM notes, I guess the former president will still get the blame [for the tourists dying in the bus crash].

Well, not only is the former president getting the blame for that incident, but I see that the AO-Hellraisers posted a nice mug shot of said former president to the left of the headline in question. Cute! (Here's a question for you guys--is this a legitimate mistake/typo, or the handiwork of a smartass liberal who works for AOL? Hmmm...)

Thanks, TOM, for finding this hilarious error!

Somebody gave Former President Bush the keys to that Bus didn't they...crashing the economy - why stop there?

Hahaha! The icing on the cake is the chimp picture. TOO hilariously coincidental.

Thanks so much for posting this, I needed a good laugh on my third day home sick with an AWFUL cold. Unfortunately I laughed too hard and it sent me into a coughing fit, but oh well. =)

@ Dave: He's really only equipped to be near one bus, and that's the short bus. And he shouldn't be driving it--just being a passenger...

@ Bridgete: Glad you enjoyed it! :) I giggle every time I look at that chimp picture next to that headline. I hope you start to feel better so that you don't have any more coughing fits!

The answer to your question: BOTH.

LOL. Those AO-Hellraisers are always engaging in monkey business these days!
