Time for another laugh
That last copy editor cartoon was so popular that I'll offer another, though I don't enjoy this one as much.In an early job interview, I can remember the editor of a paper asking me why I wanted to be a copy editor, and I went on and on about my love of language and obsession with grammar. I threw in that clever "I even edit menus at restaurants." (Cringe.)
I suppose it's better than "Why, we're the last line of defense!" But not much.
