R. D. Jones and His Sewing Machine

The following is an ad from a real-life newspaper which appeared four days in
a row - the last three hopelessly trying to correct the first day's mistake.
MONDAY:
For sale: R. D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Phone 948-0707 after 7
P.M., and ask for Mrs. Kelly who lives with him cheap.
TUESDAY:
Notice: We regret having erred In R. D. Jones' ad yesterday. It should have
read One sewing machine for sale cheap. Phone 948-0707 and ask for Mrs. Kelly,
who lives with him after 7 P.M.
WEDNESDAY:
Notice: R. D. Jones has informed us that he has received several annoying
telephone calls because of the error we made in the classified ad yesterday. The
ad stands correct as follows: For sale -- R. D. Jones has one sewing machine
for sale. Cheap. Phone 948-0707 after 7 P.M. and ask for Mrs. Kelly who loves
with him.
THURSDAY:
Notice: I, R. D. Jones, have no sewing machine for sale. I intentionally broke
it. Don't call 948-0707 as I have had the phone disconnected. I have not been
carrying on with Mrs. Kelly. Until yesterday she was my housekeeper, but she has
now quit.
