Bears repeating

If Daisy Ridley wore a dress that showed her midsection, it was midriff-baring. It bears repeating: When writing, don’t follow the example of the Yahoo! Movies staff:

midriff bearing sty

Where mistakes reign

Some editor should take the reins over at Yahoo! Style, where homophonic mistakes reign:

reigns sty

In the same article, another caption came bearing yet another assault on the language:

baring gifts sty

Unless Ms. Perry was unwrapping the gifts for Ms. Clinton, the correct word is bearing.

Don’t worry about it, honey

According to this article on Yahoo! Style, men feel threatened by smart women. Well, the woman who wrote the article doesn’t seem like she’s a threat to anyone:

have any baring sty

Do you think her inability to use correct words should have any bearing on how people perceive her intelligence?

I can’t bear it any longer

You tell me: How could a dress with a big fat cutout in the middle hold up a model’s ab? And why does she have only one abdominal muscle? Yahoo! Style has me so confused; I just can’t bear it any more:

ab-bearing sty ab-bearing sty pic

At least the model is cute, abs-baring dress and all.

Uncovering the quote

Holy moley. In what universe is the pronoun its correct in this sentence from Yahoo! Style?

its baring sty

What does it refer to? newbie? tools? I think the writer meant tools and just didn’t recognize it as a plural noun requiring the plural pronoun their. It’s a careless oversight, just like using the wrong closing quotation mark.

I’m calling T-shirts baring a quote total BS. T-shirts don’t bare quotes, though they’ve been known to bear them.

This bears no resemblance to the correct word

Unless Abercrombie & Fitch are stripping down to their skivvies, this bears only the slightest resemblance to the correct word on Yahoo! Style:

bare sty

Can a dress hold up a leg?

Can a dress hold up a leg? I know that’s a stupid question — almost as stupid as this homophonic error on Yahoo! Style:

leg-bearing sty

Duchess of Cambridge: Baring all!

I can’t bear the thought of the Duchess of Cambridge revealing a bit of skin. So unlike her. She returned from vacation, grinning and baring something. Was it a tan? A bit of cleavage? No one knows except the writer for Yahoo! Style:

bared it

Supporting Taylor Swift’s midriff

Does it take the magic of smoke and mirrors during Taylor Swift’s performances to hold up her midriff? Just wondering what the writer for Yahoo! Style was watching when the rest of the world was watching Ms. Swift’s midriff-baring costumes:

Due ewe no the difference between bite and byte? The writer four Yahoo! News doesn’t:
