Fourth in the Anguished English series, this updated collection of verbal bloopers will have word nerds in stitches. Pulling together a hilarious array of unfortunate typos, misplaced modifiers, malapropisms, and unintended double-entendres, the grammatical gaffes of the innocent, the negligent, and the downright pompous are all brought to light. From the gas station sign stating "Eat Here and Get Gas" to the church bulletin that reads "Attend and you will hear an excellent speaker and heave a health lunch", hundreds of linguistic blunders are gathered from every layer of society and presented in this jocular assemblage, extracted exactly as they were originally presented.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Complete with ridiculously obvious product warnings, church bulletin bloopers and celebrities caught saying the wrong things, this book celebrates the English language by allowing readers to laugh at others' amusing mistakes." -- Publishers Weekly
"The book is so chock-full of humorous examples that readers are bound to laugh at least once per page. Everyone makes mistakes--why are they so much funnier when they are someone else's? Lederer seems to know the answer to that one." -- Booklist
