The Uses of English

From my inbox:
"This is an important email from Ticketmaster with regards to your booking for Monkey: Journey to the West at Monkey's World, The O2.It has come to light that there has been some confusion with the terminology used in the text for this event.The term 'Journey Starts' does not mean there is any form of pre-show activity. It was simply a term chosen to keep in with the show's title and theme - 'Journey to the West.' The 'Journey' time refers to the door opening time.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience caused." Quite.

Meanwhile my DVD rental service has more inappropriate-sounding tidings for me:
"Dear Graham, Good news! We've just posted Cannibal Holocaust to you, so please look out for it." Good news indeed.
