Hurray! It's time for more Yahoo! silliness! All of the errors in this post are from the Yahoo! Canada homepage. First up, from February 17, 2011, is a misspelling of the word assault. Then,
from February 19, 2011, it's a misspelling of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's last name. Next,
there's a little bit of a disagreement from February 20, 2011. One couple needs, but two or more couples need. Get it? Got it? Good. Next up,
inconsistencies regarding capitalizations from February 21, 2011. Then,
on February 22, 2011, Yahoo! can't decide whether it's grandad or granddad. Both spellings are acceptable, but please just stick to one. Finally,
there are several issues with today's screen capture. In the highlighted text at the bottom, 95-year-old is missing a hyphen. It's present in the top headline, but in the text beneath it a hyphen is again missing from 20-year-olds. Also, to the right of the highlighted text at the bottom, there's a misspelling of Moammar Gadhafi's last name. Click an image to enlarge it.
