I was at a conference with the nation's leading court reporters. We're, of course, all spelling freaks. So when the National Court Reporters Association's Director of Public Policy began his presentation, he couldn't get past his opening remarks for all the waves of laughter. In writing his title, he forgot to put an "L" in "Public."

That's a bad place to broadcast a typo.

I may have mentioned these examples before, but I claim the senior's privilege of RAINBOW (Repetition allowed in naturally boring older women):

My student's essay-title spelling of the Seamus Heaney poem 'Death of a Naturalist' -> Death of a Naturist.

Our local curate once put two typos into a parish newsletter: 'Catholics believe that God became Mad' and 'For the Catholic, Lent is a time of feasting.'

Pupils who write stories - 'After Superman had rested for the space of a few minuets...'

My 8 year old niece was told to write what she had for dinner and she replied with "corn and porn". Sounds like an interesting meal indeed.
