Funniest Newspaper Correction is …. Drugroll, Please!


Typo correction on drugs instead of drums
Centralia, Illinois Daily Sentinel

In 2012 the editors of Centralia, Illinois’ Morning Sentinel learned the value of one little letter. Red-faced, the editors ran the following correction:

“Due to a typing error, Saturday’s story on local artist Jon Henninger mistakenly reported that Henninger’s band mate, Eric Lyday, was on drugs. The story should have read that Lyday was on drums.”
