You just gotta work through it!

If you’re trying to read this article from Yahoo! Style and you’re stumbling on some serious misspellings, you just gotta work through it:

The vegetable, believed to be named for the Belgian city, is the Brussels sprout (or sometimes, brussels sprout).

That’s not the only oddity in that module: The sentence below it seems really odd, too.

That does not soothe my nerves

Seeing a misspelling on the Yahoo! front page, one of the most visited pages on the Internet, does not soothe my nerves. It has just the opposite effect:

An avalanche of emails

With the number, frequency, and severity of errors that are made every day on the Yahoo! front page, I can’t believe the Internet giant doesn’t receive an avalanche of emails protesting its embarrassing use of English:

Too much of Graham Elliot

How embarrassing for Yahoo! TV. Here on its home page is a little more of Graham Elliot than is necessary:
