Economic Times…in the future, in the present

I had, a few days ago, posted on my blog about how Indian Airlines had made all the dates –October 25, 26 and 27– Fridays…

Well, today it is the turn of the Economic Times…

eco times wrong day 301007

Datewise, they are in the present…daywise, they are two days in the future! Someone did a great job of picturing all those ants across the banner and forgot to match the day and date!

    Wow, this is some observation, Deepa! Is this somekind of a prank or something? That image does NOT look like ants to me….

    Hee He. It seems they never thought someone would be watching the small print when there was such a major news published on the front page. In btwn It is serial LED set to decorate the banner to celebrate 20K sensex points. Wish ppl take the cue from this and watch out before making an investment looking at the big numbers.

    You have a very keen eye Deepa Mohan. Though headline, text and caption goof-ups are common in newspapers, dateline slips are rare – that too in the Masthead. More than the dateline goof-up, your description, though funny, must be very embarrasing to the shift incharge or the edition incharge, the deskhand or whoever made the frontpage of the day.

    Good observation about the date Deepa. Only that they are not ants but fireworks. The caption at the top says it all. BTW Deepavali also falls on a Thursday!
