Friday Funnies: An intro so nice, they printed it twice

Ely funny

It might not quite be New York, New York, but the Ely Standard still thought the town’s new bypass noteworthy enough to print the intro to a story about it twice.

After the mistake in last week’s edition was pointed out to editor John Elworthy on Twitter, he replied: “Good spot. My only defence is the story went through several changes as Cambridgeshire County Council clarified position. Big oops.”

    Don’t blame the council when this is clearly just sloppy subbing (if there is indeed a sub involved at all).
