Sanother day, sanother typo

It’s another day and another typo from Yahoo! News:

Chris Brown is not the only one

Chris Brown is not the only one who should plead guilty. I’m nominating the folks at the Yahoo! front page who didn’t catch this assault on the English language:

Right below Yu Darvish’s what?

Yahoo! Sports suggests that Yu Darvish and his inflamed right below shouldn’t pitch again this season. That’s just wrong:

right below sports

That’s a typo that even a spell-checker (should Yahoo!’s writers deign to use one) wouldn’t catch. Of course, it’s his right elbow that’s left us wondering how a proofreader missed that.

What a nut!

You know what’s weirder than Blueberry Hazelnut Pringles? Blueberry Hazelnet Pringles!

Thanks for that, Yahoo! Travel.

American flighting for ISIL

Apparently an American was flighting (which I think is combat inside a plane) for ISIL, according to the ever-reliable Yahoo! News:

Shark Week cut short

Is that a euphemism for the urine of a shark on Yahoo! TV?

Is anyone oncerned about this?

It seems reasonable to assume that no one working on yahoo.com is the least bit concerned about accuracy, grammar, or spelling:

Time for a new beginning

Is it me? Or are there more typos on Yahoo! Sports lately, especially in the category of ice hockey? Actually, it is me here, but it should be he:

boy find 2

When a boy finds a mismatched subject and verb, he should report it:

boy find 1

Maybe it’s time for a new beginning:

boy find 3

Not a good place for a typo

The worst place to make a typo is probably in a headline, where everyone can see it — everyone except the people who work on Yahoo! Celebrity:

Holy typos, Batman!

Here’s a look at what you can find in a single day on the home page of Yahoo! TV.

A misspelling of Kit Harington:

harrington tv hp

Incorrect quotation marks around a character’s name:

batman quot tv hp

(If the writer were referring to the movie or TV show, the quotation marks would be okie-dokie, but the reference is to the character.)

I’d like to give a shout-out to the writer of this headline, but I can’t. It’s missing the hyphen that makes shout-out a noun:

shout out tv hp

How on God’s green earth do you explain this one? Did the writer first pound out it’s, decide that it’s wrong, and change it to it is?

it is tv hp

I bet the writer of this headline would like to turn back time and correct this blunder:

turining tv

Finally, another typo (how could anyone miss that?) and a second misspelling of Mr. Harington’s name:

harrington tv hp 2
