A series of unfortunate printing mistakes has led to an Australian cook book having to be binned by Penguin Group Australia.

£12,000 worth of copies of the Pasta bible had to be reprinted when the errors came to light.

The first cookery cock-up missed by the proof reader involved a recipe advising the reader to "salt and freshly ground black people" instead of black pepper.

The second mistake saw "Pound immigrants with meat mallet until flat" being suggested instead of "Pound chicken breast with meat mallet until flat" .

The final faux pas replaced "Bring ingredients to boil in 60 seconds" with the unfortunate "Send these Pommie bastards back where they came from."

Make grimbo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
