Link is to a fine round-up of the more entertaining retractions, corrections and general oopses in the media.

Personal favourite:

The Ayrshire-based cable firm mistakenly aired the pornographic content, from adult channel Climax 3, to customers for two hours until the mix-up was discovered at midnight and the plug pulled on the offending material…

Two hours on both BBC channels and no one complained? Hmmm... I'm not quite sure what that says about Ayrshire viewers and the BBC.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
