Throwing my hands up

I practically threw my hands up in the air after reading this on Yahoo! Style:

through a party sty

It’s the kind of homophonic mistake that only happens on Yahoo!.

And then I through up my hands

I read this on Yahoo! Sports‘ “Prep Rally” and almost threw up. Instead, I just threw up my hands in frustration:

through sports pr

Are you through with this nonsense?

I do wish the writer of this Yahoo! Shine post threw in the towel and hung up her pencil before she threw out this ludicrous error:

through shine

In all my years as a writer and editor I have never, ever seen anyone substitute through for threw. Never.  Ever.
