Inspired by this thread in which Dewey Cheatem Undhow remarked:
Just wondered what other examples of misstatements people have noticed. Personally I’d assumed the TV statement he quotes was the truth! :eek: Probably just b/c you hear it so often.
What others have you noticed?
I can add one more - when he’d see commercials for that movie Medicine Man, my Hubby the scientist used to just go bananas. They kept showing this scene in a jungle where Lorraine Bracco pulled a printout from some machine and said “This is the cure for cancer!.” Hubby knew what that machine was & said he could barely get the thing to work in a temperature- and humidity-controlled lab, much less a jungle (the cure for cancer on a printout thing is probably far more ridiculous, but that’s the way irritations are).
