Nic Outterside, our most prolific howler contributor, says: “This was an advertising howler which lost an ad. man his job at the Oban Times company in 1992. At the time I was Editor of the Argyllshire Advertiser and Campbeltown Courier in which this public notice ad appeared:

“Southend Church, Campbeltown, service times for Sunday: 8.30am Early morning service, 11am Family Service, 2pm Sunday School, 6.30pm Evensong followed by anti-christ barbeque on the beach.”

The final line should have read: “followed by readings in the ante-room”. Unfortunately for the ad. man responsible, not only was his error deliberate, but the church in question was regularly attended by the Commercial Director’s mother.”
