LAST CALL: Some journalists aren't in the write

It's oft opined that journalists can outdrink, outspend and

outwrite PR people. (OK, mainly by journalists, we admit - Ed.) Well,

the first two may or may not be true, but an e-mail sent by a helpful

account exec with a point to prove at a West Coast PR agency, has shown

once and for all that not all journalists can out-write PR folks.

Take a peek at just a few of the many gaffes:

Identifying the magazine: "We specialize in the new and exciting feild

of Oraganized Import Racing."

Explaining why the e-mail was sent: "We are very interested in

converging your event for are readers base."

The sell: "The idea of new cars and trucks are very exciting to are

readers, do to the fact that are demographics state tht are average

reader purchase's a new car every 36 months."

Appetites whetted, we want more. Have you ever received anything this

bad (or worse?) Tell us at The stoopider, the better.
