Newspaper Issues Important Correction: Human/Goat War NOT Happening (At Least For Now)

Goat War Correction

Best newspaper correction ever? I think so. The Argus, a newspaper based in the U.K., ran an interview last week with Richard Robinson, the director of the Brighton Science Festival, and solicited questions from readers. In some kind of extremely unfortunate punctuation mix-up, two craaaaaazy quotes submitted by a paranoid reader about an imminent, deadly war between humans and goats were attributed to the esteemed scientist instead. The Argus was “happy to correct this,” and I don’t blame them. Phew! The longer we can hold off the human/goat war, the better. [Gawker]
