We wondering: How do they keep their jobs?

I can’t be the only one wondering how the writers and editors at Yahoo! Movies can keep their jobs when they ask questions like this:

Someone else should go back to school

I can think of at least one person on the Yahoo! News staff who should go back to school:

news first time

Taking a class to improve one’s proofreading skills seems like a good idea to me.

Justin Bieber’s blah, blah

This might as well say Justin Bieber’s blah, blah, blah.

biebers reveals screen

That would make as much sense as this video title on Yahoo! Screen.

Which peak are you referring to?

Which peak was the writer on Yahoo! Screen referring to? I can see several in the picture:

I think it’s the big purple peak, but I’d have to take a sneak peek at the video to know for sure.

Looking for a legal expert?

If you’re looking for a legal expert, you wouldn’t expect to find one writing for Yahoo! Movies, would you? Nah. But here’s one writer who thinks she knows something about U.S. marriage laws:

According to that writer, if you were married in England, France, or Dubai, you’re not married in the eyes of American law. If you had a destination wedding in the Caribbean or Tuscany, you’re not married in the U.S. You have to go through another ceremony in the States if you want the benefits of marriage.

I’m no lawyer. I don’t even play one on TV. But it seems to me that if you have a valid marriage license issued outside the U.S., it’s valid in the U.S. And I seem to remember something about Eddie Murphy’s symbolic — not legal — wedding in Bora Bora. Perhaps that’s why it is also not legal in the States. Ya think?

Preservation of capitals

The editors on the Yahoo! front page seem to be working on the principle of preservation of capital letters. They use one incorrectly here:

fp county

(It’s capitalized when used with the name of the county, like Putnam County, but it’s just a New York county.)

They don’t use one here:

fp botox lc

(It’s Botox, a registered trademark requiring a capital letter.)

But overall, they used the correct number of caps. Nice job!
