It's the subs who catch the malignant tuna

With so many people foolishly questioning the need for newspaper sub-editors, a regional press sub writes to Axegrinder with a list of recent howlers from reporters. Apparently, the subs keep a list, which runs to several A4 pages. 

The top four are: 

Church of the Six of Hearts (Sacred Heart. 

Cats sprayed and muted (spayed and neutered) 

Malignant tuna (tumour), as the cause of death in an inquest report.

Vagina (Virginia)

Some of the rest:

Duke box

Window pain

Golf war syndrome

Fowl language

Plumb brandy

Polar neck jumper

Tea earn

Cleft pallet
