Yahooooooooooooooooo! June 2011

Here is a collection of errors I detected on the Yahoo! Canada homepage during the month of June 2011. On June 1, there was a dodgy misspelling of Roger Federer's first name. Then,

also on June 1, deadly is missing an L. June 2 featured three errors. First,

a missing G in mortgages. Second,

a missing F in off (the first of). And third,

a missing N in Billy Bob Thornton's last name. On June 3,

someone goofed on Shia LaBeouf's last name. A few days later,

on June 6, BlackBerry is missing its camel-case capital letter. Then,

on June 7, Yahoo! doesn't elaborate on what a stirke is. A strike that irks, perhaps? Then,

June 10 had a couple of errors. First is the misspelling of Nicolas Cage's first name, and

second is this embarrassing gaffe by a Yahoo! writer. (Actually, considering the quantity of errors found, do you think Yahoo! writers ever feel any embarrassment?) It should either be Soccer goalie's embarrassing gaffe or Soccer goalie makes embarrassing gaffe. Then,

from June 12, LeBron's camel-case name needs that B to be capitalized. The next day,

three-month-old is missing the second hyphen. Then,
on June 18, is a blackout a dish best served dark? Maybe, but surving here is meant to be surviving. Then,
June 26 saw three errors. First, Caroline Wozniacki's last name is missing the C. Second,

Chihuahua is missing the second U. Third,

solider should be soldier. Finally,

in a repeat of the error on June 3, Shia LaBeouf's last name got misspelled on June 29. This time it's wrong twice. Click an image to enlarge it.

It looks like Yahoo! Canada is as bad as the U.S. version of Yahoo!. Yikes!
