Mistaken mess

Published 8th October 2010 by lucy moore

A friend sent through this lovely misunderstanding from their local paper:
‘My church is holding a Messy Church this Wednesday – however, the local paper got the wrong idea when they published a notice about it, and printed the following:
Church needs your help
Help is needed to tidy St Mark’s Church. A special cleaning day will be held on Wednesday October 6, and the team are appealing for volunteers to join in. No special skills are needed, just a willingness to join in and be part of the action.
Thankfully the paper published a notice with the correct interpretation of Messy Church the following week!’
