Happy St. Patrick's Day from Red Pen, Inc.


Here's hoping that if the webmaster who created the above mess of a web page ever finds a freakin' pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, he uses some of that gold to buy a dictionary or, at the very least, a working spellchecker.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! Don't overdo it on the green beer or Shamrock Shakes! ;) Also: I'd like to wish EVula, snarky commentator extraordinaire and official friend of Red Pen, Inc./The Grammarphile, a very, very, very happy birthday!

That is too funny! I just asked my 7 year old daughter if she knows how to spell leprechaun and she got it right. How does a grown person make this mistake?

Your daughter is one smart cookie, April! :D (That webmaster? Not so smart!)

Official friend? Watch out, you'll give me a big ego...

...aww hell, it's way too late to avoid that. :)

LOL! You and your ego are welcome around here anytime! :)

Have a fabulous birthday!

There is always something extra special when the misspelled word is RIGHT NEXT TO the correctly spelled word. It's as if the person typing it went 'Eh, I could shift my gaze slightly and proof-read this. But I won't."

Extra special, indeed. Like "Grammatical Short Bus" special. ;)

Leprecon= a french convict before incarceration? In which case, it's still a typo as it should be written like this : Le Pre-Con (or something like that!)

Very clever, LadyStyx! I like it! :D
