Everybody's material has typos, but some are more unfortunate than others.
WE TEACHES YOU HOW TO WRITE GOOD!
Here's a headline in an ad for a writing course offered by WritersLife.org: "How to Write Science Fiction & Fantasy Thats Your Reader's Will Love."
In the text, it says, "As of this email we has 27 slots available..."
I suspect they STILL have 27 slots available.
MAYBE THEY WERE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
One from a Guardian play review: "LSD can bring about psychotic behaviour in those who have not taken it," is one of the many striking lies in the play..."

THE INSANELY RIDICULOUS WORDING OF CLICKBAIT HEADLINES, REVISITED
"Insanely" has been joined by "ridiculously" in clickbait headlines.

I say that's fake news! Let's give the President the gold star that he so obviously was fishing for because otherwise he gets very cranky.
