Political Ad Gaff

I went to a political meeting last night where candidates were passing out their PR flyers, cards and what ever.
One lady running for Judge handed me a flashy, expensive and well done piece.  There was one of the captions that made me laugh because the wording was easy to misconstrue.
In the picture she was looking up lovingly at her 17 something son and the caption under neath said:
"Wife & Mom to one terrific kid!"

People around me were laughing and talking about the fact that it looked like she was married to her son. Yes we all knew what she meant but well some proof reading might have helped. As someone who has written a lot of gaffs over the years I can empathize with her but it is still funny.
