Ready-to-go labels for the insatiable proof-reader: I’m assuming that any keen pedant is invited to print them out and start attacking the nearest piece of poorly edited pulp.

While the ‘WIDOW’ pointer is just cruel (doesn’t everyone hate them enough already without having to rub it in?), and I’m even willing to overlook the slight against Helvetica, someone should get a Nobel Prize/gold star for ‘severe lack of creativity’, ‘this makes no sense’ and ‘lost interest here’.
