Like in a newspaper’s picture caption. Many locals make fun of our county’s newspaper; pointing out miscellaneous typos, erroneous information and errors, but today’s typo in the following picture caption is kind of a big oopsie:
The line for the H1N1 virus snakes through the parking lot at the County Fairgrounds
Obviously our county does not have people lining up to get the H1N1 virus; the replacement word here in case you’ve fallen asleep is vaccine. The line for the H1N1 vaccine snakes through…
Now that would be one nasty small-town rumor!

Hmm… I would consider lining up for the virus (for about 1 millionth of a second)
Well, since they are inhaling the virus into their nose I guess they literally ARE lining up to get the H1N1 virus. Hopefully the local doctors (see other Taylhis posts) know it needs to be a severally crippled one! Luckily the vaccines are not home-brewed… 🙂
There are shot versions too, but either way yes, they are receiving the virus either alive through an inhaler or dead through a needle.
Ok, so technically the article was worded correctly, but I still consider it an error because I don’t think it was the proper caption for the picture. I also don’t think it’s what the newspaper meant to say and made for an amusing blog post. I did send it to Jay Leno for his headlines segment 🙂
Not sure if he’ll get to read it… he’s not oing well in prime time from what I understand.
