WE’VE ALL FALLEN victim to ‘pubic’ instead of ‘public’, but this is a new one.

Virginian news anchor Eric Phillips was introducing a story about recalled rice cookers when the worst possible mistake occurred:

Needless to say, it was supposed to be PANTRIES, but someone dropped the ball on the old teleprompter.

He soldiered on through the rest of his report despite his co-anchor laughing helplessly beside him, which is no mean feat. And the worst thing? She had noticed the typo but didn’t have time to alert him:

I COULDN’T WARN YOU WHEN I SAW IT, I COULDN’T WARN YOU ERIC. I’M SO SORRY!

We get the feeling that the scripts are going to be quadruple checked from now on.
