It’s never to late

It’s never “to late.” The correct expression is “too late.” That’s just one of several homophones a Yahoo! Shine writer gets wrong in a single article:

to late 1

She’s racked up another homophonic horror here:

to late 2

As a verb wrack means “to wreck”; when you mean “to accumulate” use rack up.

She’s made more than her fair share of errors. Here’s another one:

to late 3

Now I get it: This is Shine

I just don’t get it. How does a supposed professional writer misspell two names in the very first paragraph of an article?

It’s not the first time this writer has managed to misspell Mizrahi. Personally, I don’t get it. It seems like a simple name. How can a writer specializing in fashion misspell that name?

It is possible that this grammatically challenged writer thinks that the plural of woman is womens. Or maybe the plural of the women is womens.

Let’s be generous and call this incorrect verb a mere typo:

And with some really creative thinking I can imagine that this actually makes sense, even though it appears to be complete nonsense:

And this is no doubt a little bit of humor inserted to amuse the reader:

This whole mess hasn’t fared well. But this is from Yahoo! Shine. That much I get and it explains a lot.

No fair? No, fare

The writer of this excerpt from Yahoo! TV would have fared better using the correct word:

fair-tv-pint

No fair, Shrek

Shrek: The Musical is in rehearsals in Seattle, and the Yahoo! Broadway blogger is not faring so well writing about it:
