War on Buffett

Is yahoo.com waging a war on Warren Buffett by deliberately misspelling his name?

That’s not a typo when you do it twice. And what’s with that blank space in the bottom left?

Illiterate in two languages

The writers at Yahoo! Makers aren’t known for their mastery of the English language. Now we can bestow another honor: Illiterate in French:

The expression in French is bon appétit!

Meow we’re misspelling

Here’s what looks like a simple typo on Yahoo! Movies, although I can’t always tell the difference between a typo and a misspelling:

What do Patti LaBelle and Kit Harington have in common?

What’s wrong with Patti LaBelle? Only this: In a headline on Yahoo! Style, her big B gets downgraded to a little b:

labelle sty

And what does Ms. LaBelle have in common with Kit Harington? He, too, got the “I don’t give a crap about spelling” treatment on the same page:

Something needs to be ousted

Something needs to be ousted from outsted on the Yahoo! front page:

Language under siege

The English language is under siege from the writers and editors at Yahoo! Travel:

Were hormones involved?

What did Apple’s employees secrete? Hormones? Or did they just secrete something in a hiding place? Whatever they did, as reported by the brain trust at yahoo.com, they probably did it secretly:

Where did you get that idea?

Where did the writer for Yahoo! Makers get the idea that this is how you spell footwear?

Think about it: There’s footwear, swimwear, sportswear.  And then there’s: hardware, software, silverware. Do you detect a pattern?

Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: Lush or just lush’s hair?

Those wacky writers over at Yahoo! Style are at it again! They’ve got the inside scoop on every trivial story in the fashion industry. The breaking news today involves supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who turned or freshened up her style. Maybe she turned a freshened-up style and we are just supposed to pretend we know what that means:

lushes locks

Of course, those of us who lounge around in our Alfred Dunner polyester pants with the elastic waist don’t know much about the high-class world of fashion. So finding out that this model has lushes locks (which I take to mean “lush’s locks,” because why bother with apostrophes) really made me feel “in the know.” Maybe the gal just rinses her hair with beer because she really wants luscious locks. Maybe the writer is just an idiot.

Balllooning up!

Boy, did this headline on Yahoo! Travel balloon up. It’s really overinflated:
