A rare moment of levity

I seldom laugh. Worn down by my lonely efforts to defend Western Civilization, and worries for the future of my Savantettes in a Turd World Europe, a smile seldom crosses my handsome features. Yesterday was different. Not only did I smile, I laughed. Laughed so suddenly and loudly that Lady Savant (she is of a delicate disposition) started nervously, Baudelaire’s La Fanfarlo (in the orginal French) falling from her fair hands.

The cause of my mirth was a typographical error – a magnificent error – in the Sindo. Now this rag has been waging a campaign for Nigerian asylum tourist Pamela Izevbekhai and her family (see this) to be guests of the nation indefinitely.

Antonia Leslie in her hagiography of this brazen hussy trilled ‘she had a few Sligo kitchens open to her, not only to come and eat with the family, but to cook a meal as well’

But there was a word missing. An important word – ‘with’. Thus the sentence became ‘she had a few Sligo kitchens open to her, not only to come and eat the family, but to cook a meal as well’

How we laughed! So heartily that our forthcoming doom was forgotten for a brief moment. Sadly, the error, if it was an error, was identified in later editions. Still, it was great. Thank you Sindo.
