Bulletin Blooper

Since our church's administrative assistant does not read this blog, I'm going to blog about a hum-dinger of a blooper from this morning. And ultimately, I share the blame for it making it to print, since in the pastor's vacation absence, I was the official bulletin-proofer.

We print our hymn texts in our bulletins. Today's final hymn was "Nothing But the Blood." Leading verse 3 in the bulletin was this gem:

"Nothing can for gin atone . . ."

Well, that IS true . . .

Little can for gin atone except to sleep it off!!!!!
Great blooper, what fun!
I once had a blooper in a printed prayer in a bulletin that read: "God of the propjets" instead of 'prophets'!!!!
HaHaHa...

HAHAHAHA re: "Propjets"!

I saw first-hand the result when a church secretary took a sermon title over the phone and didn't get it adequately proofed, referring to "Profits" instead of "Prophets."

Made me giggle, thinking of the horrible spoof on Gibran called "The Profit."
