Cancer of the lying down...

Email to Christie Eliezer of Beat and The Music.com.au made a bit of a gaff, so I sent this:

Christie,


You said:

Rose Tattoo have revealed that co-founder and slide guitarist Peter Wells will be too ill to join them on their Australian (May/June) and European dates. The guitarist has been battling prostrate cancer.


pros·trate
tr.v. pros·trat·ed, pros·trat·ing, pros·trates

To put or throw flat with the face down, as in submission or adoration: “He did not simply sit and meditate, he also knelt down, sometimes even prostrated himself” (Iris Murdoch).


think you meant:

pros·tate ( P ) Pronunciation Key (prstt)
n.

The prostate gland.



My old man died from the latter, though he was the former when it happened...

Cheers

Tom
