The Fail Blog is a fantastic place to visit, though not all the photos are safe for work [and certainly many of the comments are safe for neither work nor home.]

Edited 8/28 to add: Apparently that second photo is actually a promotional poster for The Simpsons — the KWIK-E-MART in the corner should have tipped me off.  But the fact that one can buy a twin pack for more than twice the price of one (as mentioned in the comments below) meant that I never question the reality of this supposed promo!  And the first picture is real, I believe.

    This sort of error makes an occasional appearance on consumerist.com as well. There they often attribute these “errors” to attempts to deceive. A few examples:

    Buy 2 for the price of 2 1/12 ? (and a similar one here)

    They also have another example of a Clearance price that is higher than the original. $49 higher, in fact.
