TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (8) . . . The Sequel's Sequel!

This week's extra-special bonus joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the BBC News via OxBlog (from Thursday, April 7; link good at time of posting):
The French government has destroyed 162,000 copies of the EU constitution because the phrase "incoherent text" was printed on a page by mistake.

The copies had been intended for use in town halls and libraries across France.

But they were recalled after the mistake was spotted. It is not known who was responsible for inserting the offending comment.

. . . .

A new, expunged version of the full 232-page text is being printed, at the cost of 74,000 euros (£51,000; $95,000).
