How Many Bananas?

banner misprint


The saddest misprint is a huge misprint. I found this mistake on a huge banner at a picnic event, and the sentence above was, unfortunately, one of the selling points of the product. The “e” has been left off from the word “one”. It should read “More potassium than one banana”. When I read this sentence, I actually couldn’t figure out what it said at first and had to reread it a few times. What a shame to pay for a valuable piece of advertising without the benefit of having it proofread first!
