private eye misprints and cartoons

A couple of misprints quoted in Private Eye of 24 August (don't usually go for these, but these were quite appropriate):
(from East Anglian Daily Times) 'A spokesman for the joint administrators, Christopher Pillar and Stephen Oldfield from the Bournemouth office of accountantancy firm PricewasterhouseCoopers,'
(from Telegraph website) 'Financial Services Authority acts to prevent banks misspelling packaged current accounts'

A cartoon from 10 August issue: vicar speaking at graveside: 'Of course, in some ways he will live on forever... thanks to Facebook's data retention policy'

A cartoon from 7 September issue: youth talking to her parents in her bombsite of a bedroom: 'I've packed everything I need for uni, so all this is legacy'
