Rolling in the aisle

They’d be rolling in the aisle on Fair Isle, after reading this on Yahoo! omg!:

First off, Fair Isle is a knitting technique named after the island in Scotland. It is not a manufacturer of the jacket little Justin Bieber wore. The wool and leather jacket was in the Fair Isle style and made by Junya Watanabe.

    Ugh! This is possibly the worst homophone error I’ve read in a long time. What an idiot!

    LOL. I’m imagining some 20-something writing this. Someone whose entire knowledge of the world was formed watching the Kardashians. Someone who has never read a book or watched 5 minutes of CNN or PBS or C-SPAN. Not that real knowledge is a requirement for writing at Yahoo. Its standards seem to be lower than a snake’s belly.

      I think you’re right about Yahoo!’s editorial standards — if they exist at all, they’re pretty low. I love your assessment of the writer. I, too, wondered how someone could be ignorant of Fair Isle sweaters.

What do you think?
