MISSPELLING MONDAY for November 9, 2009

Oh, the sweet, sweet irony of it all.* MAGGIE sent in this article about typos...and the article itself featured a typo. A very ironic typo. As in, the writer screwed up the "editor" part of "copy editor"...



Thanks,
MAGGIE, for finding this funny little typo!

* I can't be too critical of this, considering how I've made similar errors before in RPI posts. But c'mon now, this is too funny to not mock just a little bit...

So how does one "think goodness"? I'm guessing that it is the same as "think happy thoughts," but that still doesn't make it right...

Hahaha! I like that theory. (What's even funnier is that I read your comment and thought, "Oh, crap, did *I* make that typo, or is he just making fun of another typo in the article?" I'm glad to see this typo wasn't my fault!)

I had a delightful one-night stand with an editior when I was summering in the south of France a few years ago.

@ David: LOL! Witty as always! :)
