The ABC describes how whinging Pom Ben Southall won the right to the "best job in the world":
The 34-year-old beat off more than 34,000 applicants for the six-month $150,000 contract to live and work on Hamilton Island as a caretaker.
Ben will never use that hand again. This is not the first editing lapse at the ABC, by the way.

Update: The superfluous "off" is now gone.

Scratch the above post. It appears that cosmicjester did not return half-an-hour later to register a complaint, as I claimed. It seems he waited a whole twelve hours to do so. What in those twelve hours led him to such a sense of moral outrage?
