Dumbest Statement of the Day

In an article about gifts for Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, the Yahoo! Style writer screws up a basic fact as well as a basic spelling:

queen grandchild sty

The new princess is not the grandchild of Queen Elizabeth; she is the great-grandchild.

Putting in place

The editor of the Yahoo! front page has been putting in place some interesting typos and omissions:

fp has putting

So, did the writer mean has been putting? Or has put? Or is putting? Or was putting? Or something else?

You write the top, I’ll write the bottom

In this episode of “You Write the Top, I’ll Write the Bottom,” we see the results of indecision: Is hairstyle one word or two?

fp hair stylst

The American Heritage Dictionary says it’s one word and that hairstylist is one word, too.

Did it come as a surprise?

It seems that the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight caught the staff at yahoo.com completely by surprise. The writers and editors simply didn’t have enough time to master the spelling of Manny’s surname, screwing it up here:

fp paq 2

Just to prove to their readers that wasn’t a typo, they misspelled the name again here:

fp paq 1

They obviously have more important issues to cover, like the return of the fanny pack and the history of sunscreen.
