** There is an urban legend about a school which handed out pencils marked with the message "It's Not Cool To Do Drugs" to its students. Unfortunately, sharpening the pencil changed the message to "Cool To Do Drugs". And soon enough it was a bit more [[{{Pun}} to the point]], reading "Do Drugs". Probably apocryphal, since printing on pencils normally starts at the blunt end, possibly to avoid this trope.

* A version of this trope caused confusion for ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' players with the card [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=35891 Book Burning]]. The first line reads "Unless a player has Book Burning", which could be a sentence in itself, leading some players to insert a nonexistent comma between that and the other half of the clause "deal 6 damage to him or her,". This made some people believe the card damaged a player ''and'' did the other clause (put the top 6 cards of their deck into their graveyard) unless they could produce a copy of Book Burning, instead of its actual effect of "milling" 6 unless someone takes 6 damage. The official wording changed quickly, but since that version of the card is the only one that was ever printed...
