Seems to me I can't be the only one who sees typos in tiny ads. If there was a thread for them, then someone could fix them at some point. UNLESS it's Paul deliberately trying to attract the attention of us anal editor types! Now THAT'S devious!! I would not put that past him! Cast a wide net to catch all the fish, some of us fall for typo bait :D

I suggest a format of post the whole line, then the corrected line, with your change in bold.

I have a knack for fixing things like this ... um ... sorry ... here is a consilitory tiny ad:

I'd hate to have to pick my favorite ad, they make me laugh.

If gardening naked gets the most clicks, maybe you need to add a badge for that :) "I like chickens, goats, gardening naked..." There seems to be a niche for it!  Not sure what the icon would look like though :D
