These are funny. Good point about copy editors!! Seven foot doctors was my fave.

Margaret Turkevich said...

Man struck by lightning was my favorite.

Sylvia A. Nash said...

Thank you for giving me a morning chuckle! I love them all!

Gloria Alden said...


Warren, so funny. I'm still smiling over this. I enjoyed all of them.

KM Rockwood said...

Susan Oleksiw said...

Hilarious! Thanks for my laugh for the day.
