Best copyediting note of the night

By on Jun 5th

Pity the copyeditor of Offbeat Bride: Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides. I don't think he knew what he was getting into when he agreed to copyedit a book about weddings:

  ****WHOA. UH. HMMM. I'M ALL FOR ASS-FUCKING REFERENCES, BUT THIS SORTA COMES OUT OF NOWHERE … ***

This made me laugh until I almost started crying.

Trust me: the reference makes perfect sense in context, so I chose to STET the edit.

Which means that yes, Offbeat Bride: Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides is probably the only wedding book on the market that mentions ass-fucking.
