Now those Yahoos are messin' with American Idol...


Holy crap, you mean Lost isn’t the only television show out there? ChicagoLady's Red Pen, Inc., submission reminded me that other TV shows do exist. She says: While getting my Idol fix, I noticed the error in the very first sentence. I'm sure the writer meant "On the one hand..." but their version makes me think of Kara winning a hand. Another example of poor grammar by those good folks at Yahoo.

Haha! Let's all give Kara a hand for being such a fabulous judge. And let's give Yahoo a hand for...oh, wait, never mind. Their bad writing doesn't deserve a hand, unless that hand is giving them a big ol' spanking!

Thanks to ChicagoLady for finding this one!

Thanks for sending this, ChicagoLady! :) I got a kick out of this funny mistake! I will happily accept any grammar/spelling errors that you find!

No, Lost is NOT the only show out there. Neither is Supernatural, Bones or any of the others that Chicago and I swear are the only ones out there. They are simply the ones that are most important to us. Good catch though, at first scan, I didnt even catch that one. No surprise. You want some good material, hit the Idol forums...priceless.

Thanks for the heads-up, LadyStyx! I'll have to start haunting the Idol forums. I don't doubt there will be some fantastically fouled-up grammar there... ;)
