Always Blame Woody Allen

[ #20258 ]
Dear Log,

«What appeared to be an act of sabotage followed the paper's controversial acquisition in May by the ruling - but deeply unpopular - Social Democrat party, led by the chancellor, Gerhard Schröder. Thousands of copies of Monday's edition were pulped after editorial staff noticed the "un" in "unabhängige Tageszeitung", or independent newspaper, had vanished from the front page, changing its meaning to "dependent newspaper".

Yesterday the paper's executives denied the widely held suspicion that a disgruntled employee was responsible. Instead, staff blamed the error on a photo of Woody Allen. It has inadvertently caused a technical hitch, they said.»

I thought that only the voodoo images of Yoko Ono or Emmanuel Goldstein could cause such black magic!!!
