A few weeks ago, a man became inexplicably enraged by one of my idiotic
articles and wrote in to gleefully point out to me (amongst other
things) how much much of a moron I was, and used a spelling error I had
made in the opening paragraph of the article to reinforce this point.
While I will certainly grant to this gentleman that I am, in fact, "a
fucking jackass who has no idea what the fuck he is talking about", I
do take issue with being called a moron simply because I misspelled the
word "immediately". It's not that I dispute my moron-ness, but I just
feel that there are plenty of other [far more] valid reasons to call my
intelligence and writing ability into question.
I would propose that "accidentally forgetting to spellcheck something
because I was high on amphetamines when I edited it"
does not make me moron. It may make me irresponsible, and possibly a
prescription drug addict. But a moron? I think not.
But if you'll excuse me, I have to use this sentence to link this
semirelated intro to the
hastily thrown-together "Funny Headline Mistakes" article below. There.
