We had an ad in our local paper for a used car dealer who wrote: "Bring your wife into our showroom and we'll dicker." Another time, the same paper had a job announcement advertising it as a "work-free drug place".

I bet that was done intentionally. I bet it got lots of attention for the dealership.

Yeah, I think it was intentional on the dealership's part.....I'm guessing it went unnoticed by the paper itself.

The advent of the blogs, and mass media internet coverage has killed english writing skills...

Ryann was a classic example...
