Who are the proof readers?

The BBC radio broadcast the other day in the "teaser" of headlines at the top of the hour said, "And we'll take a look at why the bird flu is spreading so fast through Turkey."

Read the quote aloud to yourself and see what comes to mind.

My first reaction was, "Of course the bird flu is spreading fast through turkey; they're birds!" Then it dawned on me that they were speaking of turkey with a capital "t". Ah, the beauty of the spoken word.
