Oh, this is great, Lynn! I was especially entertained by the ones from which you can infer another meaning, like the parents of a bride requesting the honor of guests' "presents" and the proclamation that a couple lived happily "even" after marriage. I think these are funny to us because often there is actually some truth to these unintended meanings!
Thanks for sharing this book with us.

These are hilarious! I love the subtlety of getting married and being happy even after.

Hi, Lisa and Val. Glad you liked them! Get the book, and you will enjoy many more very artful errors.

As someone who plans to have the phrase "he was plagued by typos" on his tombstone, I loved this book.

That's a fine epitaph!
