Remember, you can find heaps more F*** Ups by just putting F*** Up in the Search Box top left of this page and hitting Return/Enter. More to come soon!

20130528-110121.jpgAccording to The Great God Wikipedia, Albert Lea is a city in the southeastern part of the U.S. state of Minnesota. The population was 18,016 at the 2010 census.

The city is at the junction of Interstates 35 and 90, about 90 miles (140 km) south of the Twin Cities. It is on the shores of Fountain Lake, Pickerel Lake, Albert Lea Lake, Goose Lake, School Lake, and Lake Chapeau.

Sounds nice, yeah? What is perfectly clear however is that the 18,017th resident needs to be a trained sub editor.

(Look, don’t blame me, OK? I didn’t write it … I just fearlessly report the world’s lunacies.)

Oh, those crazy whacky country McDonalds eaters:

And the most recent. The amazingly handy father:

More soon, no doubt. Keep ’em coming people.
