God Dammit!

Sheez, those humans!

Sheez, imagine, a Bible with a typo is expected to fetch £20,000! Blimey. The first edition King James version, which is nicknamed the “He Bible”, has a glaring mistake. In the Book of Ruth, “she” is wrongly referred to as “he”! Whoopsie! The 400 year old leather bound Bible is a rarity among Bible collectors and will no doubt make more than the expected  £20,000.

Psst Hmm and what about the other glaring mistakes huh?

Might Want To Proof Read First!

Oh for goodness sakes people, how many times do I have to tell you it’s Barack Obama, with one friggin “r”. The dunderklumpens at the Canberra gift shop are a little slow on the uptake. They have just ordered 200 mugs with the President of the United States name spelled wrong. It was all in honor of the visit he will probably never make in 2010.

Psst At least they didn’t put an “s” in his surname!

Breaking News!

It must have been one hell of a  late one for the journos at News.com.au . Geez, and here I was thinking I had found a cool story for the Loons! Turns out it was a typo! Not to worry,  Kristen Stewart will be gone tomorrow!

Going, Going, Gone

Hands up the dumbass with the fat fingers? It seems the sudden plunge in the US share market is being blamed on human error. Rumor has it some fat fingered buffoon entered a “b” for billion instead of an “m” for million during a trade involving Procter and Gamble. This simple mistake set off a chain of events that would make the toughest of traders weep. Yep, it was the largest intra-day plunge in the history of the Dow Jones Industrials average.

Where Can I Find Freshly Ground Black People?

Pepper people, pepper!

The Australian book publisher , Penguin, has been forced to pulp a cookbook after one of the recipes called for “salt and freshly ground black people” to be added to a dish. Whoopsie daisy, might want to hide this from Harry Connick! The typo appears on only one recipe of “Pasta Bible” but it was enough to send them into a right old state and pulp the lot. The publishers are blaming the error on their computer’s spellchecker program and not some racist proofreader!

A Typo Got Him Three Extra Years Behind Bars

I'm pretty sure ...1,2,3,4,5,....

How would you be, a Thai man has been released from an Indonesian jail after spending three extra years behind bars because of a typo! Kamjai Khong Thavorn was suppose to be a free man in 2007 after serving 20 years for heroin offenses but someone typed in  his first year of prison as being 1997 instead of 1987. It was only after Kamjai managed to get the ear of Indonesia’s justice minister, who was touring the maximum security prison, that the mistake was recognized  and the poor guy was released.

Psst Hmm, after 20 years you would’ve thought he’d lost count!
