Bad Manners

Have you ever played the game Catch Phrase? It's similar to the old $10,000 Pyramid show, or the board game Taboo. You're shown a word or sequence of words, and you have to give hints so the other players to guess the word. You aren't allowed to use any parts of the phrase.

Playing the game reminded me that even our amusements need proofreaders.

Plus an earlier post that highlights a different way to screw up the manor/manner homonym.
