It's time now for more fun and games provided by the Yahoo! Canada homepage. This time there is more fun and games than ever before! I've got almost a full month's worth of goodness, so let's get started. From May 3, 2011, vengeance was missing its A. Then,

also from May 3, 2011, levee had one E too many. Then,

again from May 3, 2011, there was a doubling of your. Then,

once again from May 3, 2011, it was a misspelling of significant. Then,

there was a homophonic fair/fare error from May 5, 2011. Then,

makeovers was missing an E in this text that is also from May 5, 2011. Then,

again from May 5, 2011, the Tampa Bay Lightning were short an N. Then,

two more errors from May 5, 2011, as declines should not have had an apostrophe and 110 years old should not have had any hyphens. Then,

on May 6, 2011, announcer was missing an N,

outburst was out of control,

and apologizes gained a P. Proofreading - there should be an app for that. Then,

May 7, 2011, saw a shortened Maradona. Then,

on May 9, 2011, there was a misspelled fighter,

and a misspelled lived. Then,

I suppose this was an inadvertent misspelling on May 10, 2011. Then,

on May 13, 2011, the business is Tim Hortons with no apostrophe. Then,

on May 14, 2011, there was a misspelling of Jon Cryer,

and a missing of between one and the. Then,

there was Tim Hortons smoothies and Tim Horton's new treat at the same time on May 15, 2011. Then,

someone must have been hogging some Ds on May 18, 2011, because bandwidth was missing one. Then,

again on May 18, 2011, surprisingly was short an R. Then,

on May 22, 2011, there was a misspelled targeting,

a screw-up of the phrase 1 in 29 million shot,

and a misspelling of souvenirs. Then,

it was a non-Canadian spelling of favourite on May 27, 2011. (The Yahoo! Canada homepage always - well, with exceptions such as above - uses the Canadian/British spelling of words like favourite and humour.) Finally,

there are two missing hyphens in forty-one-year-old right now. Click an image to enlarge it.

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

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

I know, right? But, while there are a lot of errors in this post, keep in mind that they span almost a full month. They are all from the homepage though, which is ridiculous - first impressions and all that.
