Yesterday I made what I thought was a facetious claim: The writers for yahoo.com have given up trying to write accurately and correctly. They’ve abandoned all pretense of trying to state facts and are now content to make up information. I thought I was kidding. But it seems that the folks at the Yahoo! front page are just stuck on stupid. And I’m not trying to be facetious this time because I have proof:
The baby elephant is NOT in Borneo. It is a Borneo elephant (also called a Borneo pygmy elephant) and the incident in question occurred in Malaysia. “Puppy Bowl” is the name of a TV show; it is not what your best friend drinks from. And finally, Bigfoot may wear size 20 Nikes, but that doesn’t give you the right to change the spelling of his name.
