The need for proofreaders

My brother sent me the e-news that he gets from one of his favorite independent comic book stores, with this note:

"See if you can spot the typo on the list of percentages off. Please don't forward it around though, as I'm sure L- is embarrassed enough."

Weeeeeeeeeeeeelllll, I've omitted any revealing details, but L- clearly needs a proofreader.

Here is a snippet:

25¢ Comics.

$5 Graphic Novels.

50% off all sets.

20% off all back issues.

20% off new comics.

20% off Shits

10% off Graphic Novels.

(Sorry, no discount on subscriptions or that week's new items.)

*So clearly he decided to put the GOP on sale, right?*

This reminded me of a typo I saw on a paper taped to the door of Burger King.
"We are closed for a meeting. Sorry for the incontinence."
