If only there were a way for a writer to look up the correct spelling of a product. I’m thinkin’ maybe if the writer for Yahoo! News had a picture of Hellmann’s mayonnaise, this misspelling might not have happened:
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.
