Sometimes I edit copy that reads like this:

The alluring-sounding Magnifique, which was K—’s favored substitute for the above, is known today as the wompoo fruit dove, Ptilinopus magnificus, a species beloved of Daubenton; it is sometimes and most descriptively known as the purple-bellied pigeon. Sadly, the chances of seeing a squadron of this life-enhancing bird knocking four kinds of hell out of our raspberry patch are nil, because its natural range only extends from Queensland to New Guinea. To see a wompoo fruit dove is to know that the world would be a better place if only there were more of them, but specimens of this bird too, were hard to find in Britain in 1907 (although it is reasonably common in its home territory).

And sometimes I edit copy that reads like this:

 Clean sex toys before and after use.
