I've been slowly working my way through a load of old Smithsonian magazines that I got at a library booksale a few months ago. Last night, it was the one from January 1995, and contained an article by James J. Kilpatrick entitled "Mrs. Malaprop's manged proses set a president."
As I've been known to mangle the odd sentence in my time (as the t-shirt goes "it's uncredible how well I am at grammar"), I've always got a kick out of a funny badly written sentence or two. I can remember a couple of my favorites from when I was a teenager:
"The doorball rang. I came down the stairs and opened the front door in my pajamas."
"A large hole has been found in the main street through Watford. Police are looking into it."
