Malapropism in Job Advertisement

A couple of weeks ago I was brought up short by an ad in the employment supplement of the newspaper. The advertiser, in big print, promised supplicants “a glorified career.” They’d unwittingly let slip the truth, I’m sure. 🙂

That was amusing, but it’s hard to top the worthy at a wedding banquet who proposed a toast in honor of the consummation of the just-sanctified union.
