Newspaper Fail: Burghers and Frhies

No, the title of this post is not a spelling mistake – well, sort of.

Just snapped this image from the front page of The Age newspaper website:

Burghers? Sub-editing fail.

But do they want frhies with their burgher?

  • looks like a sub-editor’s pun
    Burgher may refer to:A citizen of a borough or town, especially one belonging to middle class

    • Perhaps, but I’m sure 99.9% of people wouldn’t get that reference anyway…
