Catholic priests and sockpuppet-related scandals. I'm lovin' it!

I think we've got a few of these now. Do we need a "Typos" category?
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 5 Mar 2010.
I suppose we could - they're a worthwhile form of humour in their own right. I originally thought we should avoid simple mistakes as fundamental misunderstandings/blatant stupidity are funnier, but I couldn't resist this one.

No. They can only have their togas.

This was asked in a politics forum, so I think it was a typo for "elections..."

"Pirates seized the MV Theresa VIII, a chemical tanker with a cargo of 28 North Koreans..."

Presumably that should be "crew"?

I'm fairly certain that "clown" should have been "clone," but all the same...:-)

Only if it's not constantly smiling.

Just an innocent typo, really (should be "opinion"). It made me chuckle though!
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 1 Nov 2009.
Heh, what if he meant it.

There's a rule about not naming the source of your quote, you know ;)
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 14 Sep 2009.
So there is. I always expect 'about' pages to be useless blurb, not contain ToS/AUP kind of stuff. Maybe the guidelines could do with their own link in the nav bar.

Sorry, really can't help you on this one - I can eat the little sods all day long. Maybe you just don't like the flavour?
