An old favorite

From the Letters to the Editor of the Dublin (Ireland) The Sunday Independent (as reprinted in The New Republic, Oct. 24, 1994):

Sir — I was shocked by the language of Molly McAnailly Burke's piece on lesbian rockers, and your allowing it in a family newspaper. The offending phrase "five writhing beauties hot for each other" should be "five writhing beauties hot for one another," since "each other" applies only to two.

— Sean O'Brien, Rathfarnham, D14

I agree with eRobin, a surprising climax.

That reminds me, I need to post my letter to the editor of the South Bucks Star that got published last week. (Yes, first the NY Times, then the South Bucks Star.)
