Indeed, this IS rather strange...

I'm feelin' pretty drag-ass this morning. Actually, it's not even technically morning anymore, but I'm still kinda unawake, so it still feels like morning to me.

But even looking at the error below through my usual Monday morning-ish haze of incoherency, it's still pretty funny:


The backstory--
VICKI D, who sent in this picture, says: So much for "higher education"--my corporate finance teacher tells us she "strangely" suggests we submit the class survey. I suggest she gets a better grip on the English language...

I think this a very odd/funny mistake because even if the teacher had been going for "strongly," she'd still have screwed it up kinda royally there, since there's no "e" in "strongly." So it's not a case of mistyping one letter. It's a case of being slightly retarded with spelling. Edumacation at its finest!


Thanks, VICKI, for sending in this mistake! I'm off to go try to wake up now...

Hahaha, that's great!

I wonder if the professor is German... "Strangely" would be pronounced "Strahng-eh-lee" in German, and wouldn't be flagged as a typo, whereas "strangly" would.

@ Bridgete: A good giggle for a Monday morning. :)

@ Lucus: Ooh, good theory!

I also noticed that supposedly it takes minutes (plural) to submit the final exams. It's that difficult that it takes more than a minute to send an email?

LOL! Good point...
