In spite of my frequent inability to spell properly, I got a real kick out of this blog. It is called TEAL: Typo Eradication Advancement League. What a great idea for a blog! What a great idea for a life calling, lol!
These guys have decided that their lot in life is to go about reporting on, and in some cases, correcting public typos. This often involves the whiting out or adding various types of punctuation, mainly apostrophes. Things like "New's Paper's Only" are surreptitiously corrected in the dark of night using some white tape to become "News Papers Only".
One incident reported on the blog took place in Middletown, PA where various students' names were "corrected" by a computer spell check by the company hired to print the year book. Max Zupanovic became Max Supernova. Kathy Carbaugh became Kathy Airbag, and Alessandra Ippolito became Alexandria Impolite. Taylor Publishing, although declaring that they are taking full responsibility, said, "It happens all the time, every year."
Perhaps that shouldn't be the case in a company that gets its revenue from WORDS!
