* At some point in its history, the [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/34/Marlbororough_Arms%2C_Chester_%282%29.JPG Marlborough Arms pub in Chester, England]] was having its sign re-painted, and the painter either had too much to drink or, according to local folklore, heard the ghost of a former landlord in the ale cellar and so rushed to finish the job, but whatever the reason, the finished sign read "MARLBOROROUGH ARMS". The then-current landlord decided to embrace the mistake, and the pub's name has officially been the Marlbororough Arms ever since.

* In one episode of ''Series/TheWonderYears'', Winnie gives Kevin a bracelet with his name, "KEVIN ARNOLD", engraved on it, which he accidentally leaves at a female classmate's house while working on a school project. Rather than retrieving it before a date with Winnie, Kevin goes to the jeweller to have a new bracelet engraved - and doesn't discover until he brings it home that, thanks to his sloppy handwriting, the bracelet reads "KEVIN AMOLD" (which his older brother Wayne finds hysterical).

The ruse is up when the custom inscription on the ring comes back reading "Over Hill. Over Dale. Our lover will ever[[note]]should have read never[[/note]] fail."

* In ''[[Literature/TheHundredYearOldManWhoClimbedOutTheWindowAndDisappeared The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared]]'', a half-ton of deluxe Bibles are dropped off at a recycling center. One of the workers compares a copy verse-by-verse to another Bible. He has to read all the way to the end, as an extra verse has been appended to the last chapter of Revelations ("And they lived happily ever after.").

* In April 2009, Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman of baseball's Washington Nationals spent the first three innings of a loss to the Florida Marlins wearing jerseys that read "NATINALS" thanks to a goof at Majestic Athletic, the company that made their uniforms.
* Two (possibly apocryphal) stories about unfortunate printing errors for funeral floral tributes:
** One well-wisher was asked what message she would like to include with her tribute. She answered, "I guess, 'I'll miss you.'" On the day of the funeral, she was horrified to discover her tribute was accompanied by the message "I guess I'll miss you."
** At another funeral, the director noticed that the tribute from the deceased's sister had no message on it, so he ran to the printers to have a ribbon made up with "Beloved brother" written on it. The deceased's sister was fortunately more amused than upset to discover that the ribbon instead said "Beloved bother", and only wished her brother could be there to share the joke.

One mistype changing the 'j' to an 'h' in Jung, and the change in meaning causes Niles to [[INeedAFreakingDrink Need A Freaking Drink]]. Funnily enough, the phones still ring off the hook.
