** Another episode featured a Jeweler's variation of the trope. When Klinger accidentally throws Margarett's engagement ring in the trash, Hawkeye and BJ help him replace it when they find it was a dime-a-dozen cheap ring sold by local merchants to begin with. 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.").

* On ''WillAndGrace'', Jack lands a role on a gritty new cop show "The Badge," but the cast party features posters reading "[[DoubleEntendre The Vadge]]" -- probably, as Jack admits, because he ordered them over the phone and said "B as in 'bagina.'"

Added DiffLines:

* 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).


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** The tickets for the Championship Play-off Final in 2015 referred to one of the teams as "Middlesborough".[[note]]There's only one "O" in their name.[[/note]]

* On ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', Niles in one of the seasons runs into this when he tries to take an ad out in the newspaper as a "Jung specialist, specializing in individuals, couples, and groups, tell me where it hurts." 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.

* ''Series/TheGrandTour'''s opening uses this as a CouchGag; a sign welcoming the presenters will always have the last one's name misspelled. For example, "Richard Hammond, James May, and Germy Clarkson" or "Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and Jams Made."

* This trope sets off the whole sequence of events in ''Film/{{Brazil}}'', in which a dead fly falling into a daisywheel printer causes a warrant to be put out for a Buttle instead of a Tuttle, and the poor fellow ends up getting arrested and dying under interrogation.
