With Christmas and everything that goes along with it, I have gotten behind on my reading of local newspapers, etc. Tonight, I finally sat down to get caught up on one. I got quite a kick out of one particular article! A fine gentleman had donated some money to a nursing home. The picture of him and two of the head employees in a certain department was on display. The same picture had been printed in the same newspaper the week earlier. Unfortunately, the job and title of one of the employees had not been mentioned in the earlier article. The newpaper reprinted it so that the employees' job and title was recognized. Along with the job and title came an apology. Are you ready for this one??? Okay, here it goes, word for word, as it appeared in the newspaper: "This is a correction from last week. We did not state what ------ job and title was, we are sorry if this caused any incontinence."
Just in case you are infamiliar with the definition of incontinence, I have taken time out to get Webster's definition for you.
Incontinence: The inability to restrain natural discharges or evacuations of urine or feces. In layman's terms, this means that the person can not control his/her urination or defecation.
I have to think that more than a few people out there who read this article may have had their own problem with incontinence when they read about it! I wonder if anyone has sent the article into THE JAY LENO SHOW. He'd have a ball with this one! LOL!!!
