It's time, once again, to share more goofs from the Yahoo! Canada homepage! They have really been screwing up a lot lately. You don't need to use both of your eyes to see that there is one I too many in what should have been checklist on February 12, 2011. How did that get missed? Ay ay ay. Later that day,
it's Walmart on the homepage, but after clicking the link to go to the article,
the headline states that it's Wal-Mart. I don't know - and I don't care - which one's correct, and it seems Yahoo! doesn't either. The key in this case is consistency. Then, on February 13, 2011,
Pamela Anderson is given an extra O. She should sue the writer, and make them an ex-writer. Also on February 13, 2011,
the word once does indeed begin with a vowel, but it does not start with a vowel sound when said aloud. That is a very important distinction, because it means that the text above should read a 'once-in-a-lifetime' rally instead. Finally,
this misspelling of embarrassing was seen today. I wonder if Yahoo! will ever get embarrassed enough to try to halt the steady flow of errors that appear daily on the Yahoo! homepage. Orrrrr, maybe the trying has already started. Yikes!
