  1. When I started to read the blurb for Saturday Night at the Movies I was confused why the colonel was bringing his “bridge” home. Then I guessed it was his “bride” that came home with him. Probably she was much easier to transport than even a small bridge…

    1. That mistake was kinda funny and I’m shocked that Robert didn’t catch it! However, if you really want to see mistakes aplenty, pick up the new issue of TV Guide! The TV grids are ripe with mistakes for the week of December 2nd! Too many to mention here, but this one caught my eye: According to the Sunday grid, the NBC football game starts at 8:20 and ends at 10:00! For that to happen, the NFL would have to eliminate all time-outs, the half-time break, AND the commercials! Really, how can TV Guide gotten so bad? 50 years ago, they had 100 editions which were near perfect! Today ,they only print one national edition, and they can’t even get THAT right!
