Was that the Gobi or the Sahara?

How much chocolate frosting do you need to spread around a desert? I guess that depends on the desert. At 3,600,000 square miles, the Sahara is one large (and hot) desert. I imagine you’d need more than a few truckloads of Betty Crocker’s Rich and Creamy Chocolate Frosting to do the job right. I know! Let’s ask the “journalist” from Yahoo! News what he thinks:

Didn’t we all learn in the third grade that the course that comes at the end of a meal is a dessert? It has two S’s. You can remember that using the handy mnemonic Miss Sampson drilled into our heads: Dessert has two S’s because you want more of it than a desert.

    Yahoo! would benefit from a detail-oriented person to proofread their articles before they are published. The blaring typos I’ve seen on Yahoo! recently are ridiculous.

      I think having ANYONE proofread their articles would be an improvement. Even just requiring that everyone do a spell-check before publishing would help. There’s just no excuse for misspellings these days — except that Yahoo really doesn’t care about quality.
