As someone who loves non-sequiturs and absurd nonsense of all sorts, the newspaper has been of great comfort over the years. I used to work at a small-town paper, and it's amazing the kind of stuff that almost makes it into print; not just egregious misspellings and odd turns of phrase, but weird content placeholders ("the rotary club did some crap someplace" could be a news item, prior to the whens wheres and hows coming in). Even knowing that, though, it still blows my mind when really strange stuff shows up in the newspaper. Here are some that made us laugh.

Mom! Can I bring George Lopez?
