Mickey Rourke’s bout was fixed? Big deal. You know what really should have been fixed? This typo on Yahoo! Celebrity:
Sometimes it seems like readers are besieged by misspellings and typos on Yahoo!. And there’s no reason for the kind of mistakes we all find on the Yahoo! front page:
and Yahoo! News:
If the writers and editors refuse to use a spell-checker or a dictionary, then maybe they should just stick to easier words, like attack. I don’t think they can mess that up.
If you play fast and loose with English, you’re bound to come up with laughable results. Just ask the writer for Yahoo! Style who’s the new loser:
Armani is known for his looser clothes, which the writer alleges are minimal, which probably means they hardly cover all your bits and bobs:
I always thought his clothes were minimalistic, but I was wrong. But I wasn’t as wrong as the writer whose spelling ability is a real liability when it comes to the movie Inglourious Basterds.
How can you tell the Yahoo! Style editors have no commitment to their job and have, in fact, given up? It starts when they can’t even get the name of their site right:
And it goes on to the misspelled series and a commitment that couldn’t be more screwed up.
They don’t bother to spell three words correctly and don’t bother proofreading or running a spell-checker. These “editors” have checked out.
