This really gets my goat...and it also makes me giggle.



Generally I feel like a public/pubic error is the holy grail of hilarious writing-related mistakes, but I'm starting to wonder if a scapegoats/escape goats error isn't perhaps even more funny simply because it's probably much less common than public/pubic errors...

Thanks to DAVE for spotting this one!

You definitely had me hanging on my monitor for the Red Pen error, cuz "escape goats" was not the first or only. lol

LOL. "Escape Goats." I have to be honest, I used to think that's what it was . . . until I turned about 12.

@ Cynical Synapse: True, not the only error there--but definitely the one that takes the cake! :)

@ Cole: LOL! That's OK for a 12-year-old to think...as long as that 12-year-old learns the correct phrasing eventually, which you clearly have done. :)
