Here are some of my favourite comments and emails:

"...was short a T in the spelling of happen"
Shouldn't that T be a B?
[then, two minutes later...]
 > "...was short a T in the spelling > of happen"
> Shouldn't that T be a B?
It's cursed! P, it was supposed to be P!

Why is the mileage worse on the highway than in the city?

Yahoo has the worst writers. They're constantly screwing up the facts and they have only the faintest grasp on the English language. And they don't bother to spell-check.

Good grief! I think I would have stopped reading after the second "then."

I'm still struggling with the wording: Find out everything you ever wanted to know.
It makes me think I discover the questions that I didn't know I had about Nickelback.

A message re: CBC web writing - SORRY!‏
Hello there,
Stumbled across your blog. Very embarrassing to read, as an employee of the CBC in Vancouver. Keep listing those terrible errors. I will bring this site to the attention of our web team.

I didn't know it was legal to drive hands-free. I don't want to even think about what the driver is steering with.

Holy crap! Is it possible that the Canadian version of Yahoo is actually worse than the U.S. version? Wow. Just wow.

Nice man. Extremely informative post. I'll be sure to pass this along to my tech guys.

I feel like Surprise takes the back seat to a lot of spelling errors. After all, do you say the first R when you pronounce it?

If you’ve been unemployed for a while, you probably know how mind-numbing unemployment can be. Instead of just waiting around for the “perfect” job opportunity, you should just take a job that will get you by. A flexible part-time job means that you have the opportunity to check out new full-time jobs as they come up, but it also means you have something to stay busy and pay the bills. Delivering pizzas, mowing lawns, or walking dogs – none of these is beneath you. As long as you’re working to put food on the table and a roof overhead, you can be proud of your accomplishments.

That's some of the worst writing I've ever read (and I read bad stuff every day). I love the "17 years dead" and wonder if her hometown is Clifford or if Clifford is the name of the cemetery in her hometown. Ugly, awkward, clumsy writing.

There has been a trend in recent years for employers to seek out increasingly specialised skills in their recruitment process. Think about what your specialist strengths are and how you could help an organisation by applying them. Then seek out opportunities that require these specialist skills. Although there may be a smaller number of jobs in your particular specialism, your chances of securing one of them are much better. Learn more: employment tips

Actually, WTF isn't an acronym since the letters don't produce a pronounceable "word."

Perhaps he was referring to the doors.

Thanks for correcting your spelling of "apostrophe" by inserting the "r".

One of the best and easiest ways to prevent impotence is through exercises. In most of the cases impotence is caused by lack of poor circulation of blood in the penile area. Exercises increase the quality and quantity of the blood that flows through male sexual organ. Men who exercise 4-5 hours a week have 30% less risk of having impotence.Impotence exercise is more effective than quitting smoking, drinking or losing weight. Exercise that gets the heart pumping is good for sexual health. It helps for blood circulation and reduces the risk of heart disease. Exercises like jogging, walking, running, an elliptical machine are quite effective exercises for prevention from impotence. Lower abdominal exercises are also effective, lower abdominal exercises increases blood flow in the lower body and also load the body with oxygen. More blood flow in the organ means increased energy in that organ. Exercise can produce wonderful results and help you overcome impotence naturally.

That's hysterical. How does something like that get passed the eyes of an editor or proofreader?
(January 29, 2010)

Looks like Yahoo! Canada employs the same brilliant editors as Yahoo! U.S. Or maybe they don't have any editors...
