Steve’s Hall of Shame:* Soldiers used to standing bridge

From the Fredericksburg, Va., Free Lance–Star, March 19, 2015.

The soldiers were used to the bridge? And it was the standing bridge: that much was true: it was the last standing bridge, which is how we would write it in plain English.

Don’t let this happen to you: read captions carefully before publishing them.

* “Steve’s Hall of Shame” is what one writer called my collection of bloopers. I decided to keep the name.
