MISSPELLING MONDAY for June 15, 2009

Once again, an example of why a computerized spell-checker just doesn't cut it... YVIE found this article about Tila Tequila, and here's what she had to say about it: She was doing what to him now? I've decided the reason these stories have so many errors is because the person writing them is going "THIS IS BIG NEWS, NO TIME TO DOUBLE CHECK, MUST INFORM THE MASSES!". Or they're lazy. I give them each a .5 out of 10.

For the record, "rating" should have been "dating" here. Ugh. So sloppy!

Thanks, YVIE, for finding this one!

Also: a special shout-out to PAPA GRAMMARPHILE...it's his birthday today! Happy Birthday, Dad! :)

Is it really a typo, or just Engrish?

*runs away quickly*

David said...

Maybe she was rating him - on the swimabilty of his sperm perhaps?

@ Winona: The site this came from isn't a very Engrish-laden site, so I suspect it's a non-Engrish-related typo. :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ David: Hahahaha! That's possible...

Dave said...

Why does everyone make such a big deal over celebrities? Especially the ones who obtain celebrity status just by being whores? Tila should do a Trisha Tanaka and do the world a favor...

Happy birthday to your papa!

mama grammarphile said...

Ruh-roh! Maybe she should be dating Scooby Doo instead.
Love you.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Dave: Nice Lost reference! :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Rimpy: Aww, thanks! I am sure he'll read this post/these comments later tonight and will be grateful for the birthday wishes!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Mama Grammarphile: Scooby-dooby-doo!!! LOL.

Obviously it was supposed to say, "Tequila was reportedly raping singer/rapper Ray J earlier this year."

Hello, THE GRAMMARPHILE.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha! Yes, clearly, that's exactly what it was supposed to say!

And hello to you, too, SCOTT! :)

Oh thank goodness Scott went there so now I don't have to.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ LadyStyx: Yay! More company for those of us whose minds are frequently in the gutter. :)
