Sorry, had to balance out the universe.

Thanks to Jason “Lefty” Williams, who found this one… somewhere.  He didn’t even tell me.  The best thing about this picture is that it needed no words.

“Detective” is my middle name

…or it would be, if I were cool.  Anyway, I really like how sometimes the nature of a given error can tell you something about the person who made the mistake.  Take a look at this one that Meg found, for example.

The person who wrote the copy for this package didn’t use a bad translation program or just make a funny second-language mistake.  Well, I mean, they did, in the clunky word order and conjugation of “freeze-dry.”  But the “plane” instead of “plain” mistake?  To me, that indicates that the author actually spoke passable English.  Someone knew that the word they wanted was “plain,” and just couldn’t figure out how to spell it.  I think that’s neat.

Worth a second pass

Hard-core, I-liked-it-before-it-was-cool RPBers may remember this picture, which was the second post ever on this blog.  I’ve decided to resurrect it in honor of today’s “holiday.”

Happy Valentine’s Day, people!

Apos-tas-trophe!

Kudos to Kacia for the perfect title for this post, which she found on Kaboodle.com.

While this obviously makes my teeth hurt, I’m actually *less* disturbed by this than I would be by “your.”  It indicates a sad lack of proofreading and/or spellchecking, but it doesn’t indicate the same obstinate refusal to learn the difference that “your” would have indicated.  So, props to Kaboodle, I guess?

OMG ASA, WTG!

Reporter #1 happened to find herself at a sociology conference recently.  She says, “We never said we were good at math… Apparently we’re also not good at spelling about math.”

ASA

Actually, Reporter #1, the spelling about math is just fine.  The problem is that you didn’t want to be spelling about math right there.  🙂

I can’t headdesk enough.

Galen sent this one, noting only that one might actually want to flee the fleas.

For the editor who has everything.

So last week, Reporter #1 actually stopped texting me typos and came in corporeal form to visit me.  It was very exciting.  And although she definitely did not need to do so, she brought me a thank-you card she had made from a typo.

Isn’t it just gorgeous?  Have you ever seen a more perfect thank-you card?  I was all a-squee.  Thanks, Reporter #1!

Where’s Typo?

Lisa sent this, mysteriously captioned only “Look at the tiny sign.”

For your benefit, I have performed a magic, CSI-like zoom for y’all:

Obviously, the problem is that they’re still using videotape, right, Lisa?

John found this little mental workout, and says:

It’s great that our local climbing gym has workshops for women…  But “passed”?

Hey, at least they got the possessive pluralization of “woman” right!
