Bad Quote Quotient - This Time It's Titular

Sometimes the best bad quotes come in the most unexpected of places.

Today, while working on a cookbook at work, I came across the following chapter title. What makes it even stranger, is that the author had gotten this correct in the Table of Contents, but had gotten it wrong in the actual book.

The chapter was titled "Hard Working-Woman".

My immediate thought - which I did not write into the manuscript while suggesting that "Hard-working Woman" might be more acceptable under the chapter's circumstances - was "I bet she still had a heart of gold."

Either way, it made me laugh at work. I didn't share it at work, because I figured most people wouldn't think it was funny.

I still do, though.
