    1 - Funny or ironic typos.
    2 - Common typos you are sock&tried of seeing.
    =========1 of these is more a malaprop than typo. I'm thinking about starting a tread for those.

    "... I am still not certain where I will be after the next couple of weeks. The 'credit crunch' has severely dented my moving plans so I am not sure what the future holds. I am sure I will keep in touch with the school and will certainly be around clearing out my stiff over the summer holidays ..."

    A well respected union leader by the name of Athol Monk died at the end of a period of much industrial action and the report in the Canberra Times read that he had 'died of a strike.'

    businessman sending a postcard to his wife, "dear wife am having a wonderful time, wish you were her"

    'womens' underwear: 40% off' 'Skirts : down 20%'

    when they claimed the afternoon viewing was the James Bond film "The Man With The Golden Gnu".

    I sent a note out to a business colleague saying (I thought) 'The overnight batch job for sales retention is now working'.
    I then got a slightly reproachful note back saying 'I know that! I thought you were going to run it manually until it went live'.
    It's amazing how much difference one letter can make - specifically when you write 'not' unstead of 'now'...

    “I enjoyed my time enormously at the school developing my communication skills, the importance of the body in expression on a nonverbal level and the ability to devise with a group of my pears.”

    “I have a graduate degree in unclear physics.”
    “I worked for 6 years as an uninformed security guard.”
    “My last role was a plumbing and hating specialists.”
    “The academic scholarship I earned came with a plague.”
    “Most of my experience to this point has been as a blue-color worker.”
    “As part of the city maintenance crew, I repaired bad roads and defective brides.”
    “My hobbies include raising long-eared rabbis as pets.”

    Today I noted a patient called because of his terrible abdominal craps.
    One day I finished signing my charting on the computer and realized I had written "Neutropenis precautions"!!...

    I don't think these two are typos, but they annoy me, and seem pretty common around here.

    "you loose"
    "your stupid" "your an idiot"

    That could have been a correct spelling if spelt by some of the members here.

    The trial may have been far and impartial, and the Judge saw to that

    I made a very bad typo a long while back in a post. The thread was about a woman dating a married man. I meant to write "I wouldn't date a married man". Instead I wrote "I would date a married man". The next day I had emails from married men asking me out. And if that wasn't bad enough emails from female posters telling me what a tramp I was. I ended up deleting my profile and creating new one. I can laugh about it now but at the time it wasn't funny.
    "I had been busty getting myself back together after a break-up with my now-ex- girlfriend ..."
    seeking for meen between 23 to 26 "looking for my sole mate" "No physcos" "fiends first is okay, but I am looking for a relationship" "desire to meat interesting people". “I have two collage degees.” “a nice easy going lay with a good sense of humour” "I need a guy with the hole package" " we should meat and see if it goes any feather". wet kisses and hot dougs at yankee stadium "i am looking for a goodheated woman” "I like to eat desert first because life’s to shot”
    "I am not the girl next store: but close” Im a devorced and out looking again for the women of my dreams and im hopeing to find her “
    My ex once wrote me a letter telling me that he " missed me a hole lot." I almost died laughing.
    "hi im single hard working man lookinf for the same person of interest im loking for a friend and or see it where it goes afterwards? i am a friendly nice man and searching for the same? what i would do on a first date ? i think it should be a a fine diner and or a movie? maybe a nice dancing somwheres of interest?" - Does? he? really? know? what? he? wants?
    I love it when the profile says they are intellagent and mateur
    Looking for a woman with "famine" sensuality. It took me a few minutes to realise he meant feminine. LOL I wondered if he was looking for an anorexic at first.
    My favourite was the young woman who claimed in her profile that she liked to do things "on the sperm of the moment".
    Another was a guy who wanted "female onions on my profile." Made me cry so hard from laughing that I almost "leeked."
    "looking for a sinceable girlfriend togo to a restaurants that is afordable with the high coast to go to the good restrurant were the cost is not to costly as most are."
    "somewhere quite so we can hear each other talk"
    I just came across one that read "cough potato" under profession.
    “looking 4 a women”

    I consistently flip e and h in most words, especially teh and tehre, which are typos. I think using you're incorrectly isn't a typo.
  8. tim840 Registered Senior Member

    i often accidentally attach the last letter of one word to the beginnning of the next word

    like "th egame" instead of "the game"

    and i also sometimes write "teh" for "the"

    My parents were selling their house about 20 years ago and were shocked to discover when reading the classified ad that they had a "multicoloured shite" in their bathroom....

    Not all of us rise to the notorious in our typos. Few could expect to match the Barker and Lucas Bible of 1631, famed as "the Wicked Bible," in which Exodus 20:14 reads "Thou fhalt commit adultery." Or the 2010 Chilean 50-peso coin on which the name of the nation is spelled 'CHIIE." Gregorio Iniguez, managing director of the Chilean Mint, lost his job, but the 1.5 millions coins remain in circulation. Or even the U.S. Bicentennial Commission, which sent out a newsletter in 1971 referring to the forthcoming 200th anniversary of "the Untied States."

    I'm still working through the thread, but I don't get that, or I get it so wrong that I should shut up now... [​IMG]

    I'd flip a little: Wait.. What if he meant a multicolored Shi’ite? "The dude was just there, kneeling and praying!" [​IMG]
  16. StrangerInAStrangeLa SubQuantum Mechanic Valued Senior Member

    They meant defective bridges but said defective brides. Near the end of Post #1.
