    Paper ran an ad with several profanities in its Oct. 15 edition: http://www.kxii.com/news/headlines/65108807.html

    The publisher's reaction: We don't read all the ads.

    "That shit is weak," indeed. Lamer than lame. But priceless as hell.

    Here's the ad as it ran (poorly-scanned and maybe NSFW for language): http://media.graytvinc.com/images/pottsboro-press-ad-isolated.jpg

    Someone's about to go on an indefinite "furlough"

    considering the size of the paper, i'm guessing the publisher was the last line of defense in the proofreading process and he ain't going to furlough himself.

    Here's a much-better copy of the ad (and I will do it this way this time since some of us use worse language in some posts):
