A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven!

    With the response of our headline malaprops, we follow up with bloopers, malaprops and typos that actually appeared in church bulletins throughout the country. Their faux pais are listed below for a chuckle or two or three. Some are ridiculous, some are hilarious, and some make no sense whatsoever. But then one man's humor is another's doldrums and vice versa, but God wants us all to laugh as we continue our journey to Heaven so have a good one on us and enjoy some of these Bulletin Bloopers and pray for the bulletin person who typed them. We're sure they heard no end to their faux pais.
