Crash blossom of the day

This one via the ever-humorous Criggo.

See my post from two years ago for several dozen more.  If nothing there makes you laugh, you must be a crotchety old Scrooge.

p.s. - Dan Bloom, who coined the term "crash blossoms" (at a copy editors' forum) left a comment back then indicating that he was authoring a book on the subject, but I can't find anything listed at Amazon.  There is a relevant website.


  1. Even if you can't find the book, you can always link to the website:


    It's still updated from time to time.

    1. Excellent, chakolate. Your link had an "about" section with a link to the origination of the term.

      Added to the text of the post. Tx.

  2. Thanks for the shout out, Minnesotastan! You da MAN!
