Advertisement: The most truthful part of a newspaper.
The following are ads from a real-life newspaper which appeared four
days in a row - the last three hopelessly trying to correct the first
MONDAY: For sale: R.D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Phone
948-0707 after 7 P.M.. and ask for Mrs. Kelly who lives with him cheap.
TUESDAY: Notice: We regret having erred in R.D. Jones' ad yesterday.
It should have read "One sewing machine for sale cheap. Phone 948-0707
and ask for Mrs. Kelly, who lives with him after 7 P.M."
WEDNESDAY: Notice: R.D. Jones has informed us that he has received
several annoying telephone calls because of the error we made in the
classified ad. The ad stands correct as follows: "For sale -- R.D.
Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Cheap. Phone 948-0707 after 7
P.M. and ask for Mrs. Kelly who loves with him."
THURSDAY: Notice: I, R.D. Jones, have no sewing machine for sale. I
smashed it. Don't call 948-0707 as I have had the phone disconnected. I
have not been carrying on with Mrs. Kelly. Until yesterday she was my housekeeper but she quit!
