Blackadder the Third - Mixed Up Dictionary?
If you watch the episode entitled 'Ink and Incapability' you'll notice a pretty silly error.
There is a scene towards the end where Dr Johnson (Robbie Coltrane) is checking to see which words Prince George (Hugh Laurie) has underlined and says:
"Bloomers, bottom, burp?" <turns a page> "Fart, fiddle, fornicate???"
The point being that he only turns *one* page in the gigantic manuscript and somehow jumps from B to F!

Considering the size of the book it was a slip up. I noticed this too the first time i saw it. There is way too much of the book left for it to be anything but a slip up. Blackadder was filmed in front of a live audience, it was a comedy and a bit of fun, i hardly think they were trying to show how many words were missed out.

OK read the entries. notice how far apart the second letters are. now consider how many words fit on a double spread in a dictionary. This isn't a slip up it just demonstrates how slim the volume was and how many words were missed out.
