Anchorman is rewriting an outdated item
Untimely error possibly made by a Cornishman
Something out of its time
Item that could not have occurred when said
Something belonging to another time
A Cornishman is strange, old-fashioned chap
Non-archaism wrongly placed?
Something appearing in the wrong time
For instance, in costume drama a digital watch that gets the date wrong
Misplace a Cornishman such as Trevithick going via Eurostar?
