In this month's American Rifleman Dope Bag, they test a Traditions Elite shotgun.
In one paragraph they state that both barrels shoot a modified pattern.
In the next paragraph, they take it hunting and complain that they wish it had double triggers so they could have chosen the tighter pattern.
Uh.....does anyone READ their reviews before printing them?

Ah, the joy of working in publications. Sometimes stuff creeps in when it shouldn't.

Just before I started with Rifleman, there was an article on the FBI's new 10mm handguns.

One of the artists did something to the layout, and typed in the word SPACE to indicate that there needed to be some finessing.

Unfortunatly, it was forgotten and missed during final editing. By the luck of the draw in where he put the word, the artist gave the FBI its own space program.
