Maybe you should try Googling her name

I know one person who didn’t bother searching for Ariana Grande, and that person works at yahoo.com:

Oddest oddsmaker is a real stinker

Here’s a really odd oddsmaker from the Yahoo! front page:

fp oddmakers

That’s not the only oddity in that module: The sentence below it seems really odd, too.

That does not soothe my nerves

Seeing a misspelling on the Yahoo! front page, one of the most visited pages on the Internet, does not soothe my nerves. It has just the opposite effect:

An avalanche of emails

With the number, frequency, and severity of errors that are made every day on the Yahoo! front page, I can’t believe the Internet giant doesn’t receive an avalanche of emails protesting its embarrassing use of English:

fp avalance

Too much of Graham Elliot

How embarrassing for Yahoo! TV. Here on its home page is a little more of Graham Elliot than is necessary:

graham elliott tv

Still holding your breath?

Take a deep breath. Breathe in. Breathe out. Stay calm, this misspelling on Yahoo! DIY may pass:

Acute mistake

It’s so cute when the writers for Yahoo! try to pound out words or names that include accent marks. It’s cute, and usually wrong. Today, it’s Renée Zellweger’s name that has a misplaced acute accent on Yahoo! Celebrity:

renee celeb

That is not Aaron Rodgers

That’s not Aaron Rodgers on the Yahoo! front page, but it should be:

fp aaron rogers

Yesterday, it was a misspelled Roethlisberger. Today, it’s a misspelled Rodgers. Why do yahoo.com writers have a problem with quarterbacks?

That is not Ben Roethlisberger

I know very little about American football (or even non-American football), but I do know this is not how you spell Ben Roethlisberger’s name:

What do Matthew McConaughey and J.R.R. Tolkien have in common?

What could Matthew McConaughey possibly have in common with J.R.R. Tolkien? They both appeared on the home page of Yahoo! Movies. And they’ve both had their name misspelled there:

mcconauhgey movies

 

tolkein movies

Here’s a tip for Yahoo!’s writers: You should always, always verify the spelling of every name you pound out. Simply highlight the name, right-click, and choose “Search Google for …” See how easy that is. There really is no excuse for making mistakes like these.
