Toss that frenemiest

Here’s one way to turn your readers into frenemies: Make a typo on your home page, just like the editors at Yahoo! Style did:

What it’s best known for

I don’t know what Yahoo! Finance is best known for. Could it be the typos? Or is it best known for its writers’ inability to distinguish a contraction (like, oh, say, maybe it’s) from a possessive pronoun (like its)?

Busy, busy, busy

Busy, busy, busy. I don’t have any problems saying busy. Why would Mr. LaRoche have a problem saying it? That’s what I’d like to ask the Yahoo! Sports writer:

saying busy spo

Was it the kind that comes in a can?

Suffering back spams can’t be fun. I just read about it on Yahoo! Sports and I’m left wondering: Was it the Spam that comes in a can or the spam that comes in your email?

Pants or asparagus?

Thanks to Yahoo! TV for the first laugh of the day.

Yum. Pears on a string

Imagine a woman accessorizing an outfit with a string of pears. I’d love to see that, but alas Yahoo! Style merely provided a description:

Where does she wear it? On a hat like Carmen Miranda? Or maybe she just hangs them from her purse, like this:

Maybe the pressure is getting to the editors at Yahoo! Sports. The home page of the site is usually free of egregious errors. But there’s some serious typos that any spell-checker would have caught:

Is that the best you can do?

You know what would be better than Bestt? Best.

I’m thinking that maybe we should start a GoFundMe camplaign to buy the editors and writers at Yahoo! Style a spell-checker.

What were you thinking?

I could be urging the Yahoo! Style “news editor” to proofread her writing before she publishes it. But I won’t because if I did, we wouldn’t be treated to this bit of amusement:

gender neural sty

I think a “gender neural dress code” specifies that male neurons must wear pants, and female axons must be covered at all times.

How does a typo like this — on the home page of Yahoo! Celebrity — go unnoticed and uncorrected?
