Oops.

I still remember when I discovered the existence of typos and other such mistakes, at the tender age of eight or ten. I was so taken by the concept that mistakes could make their way into print that I began to collect them. I kept my clippings in a box for a black light bulb, which was labeled “Black Light Blub.” In fact, I think it was that “Blub” that first sparked my interest.

The collection is long gone, alas, but I still take a perverse delight in seeing mistakes in print. I’m sure this was an embarrassment to someone at the Times-Pic, but it provided me with a brief moment of amusement. So, thanks.

    [...] like a good typo as much as the next guy, but god, please, let it not be a typo.  I just love the idea our country could actually turn into [...]

    That is an epic typo. Good thing for them that they didn’t insert some temporary swear words.

    I think that “Blub” is a great word for “Typo.”
