Yahooooooooooo! November 2011

It's time once again for a monthly roundup of errors from the Yahoo! Canada homepage. This time we look at the blunders that were made during November 2011. First up, on November 5, the word in had no right to be included. Then,

November 8 saw a misspelling of Michelle and Jim Bob's last name. It's too bad the writer didn't simply copy and paste the headline from the actual article (which features the correct spelling of Duggar). Then,

there was a certain news item on November 9 that Yahoo! really wanted you to see. Later that same day,

what does it mean to be umarried? Did Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie get married in a U-Haul truck? Then,

there was a ridiculous hear/here homophonic error on November 19. Then,

on November 24 Yahoo! proved that they could use another (or a first) proofreader of any age. Maybe even a 51-year-old. The article's headline is also wrong. Then,

fisherman should have been fishermen on November 25. Then,

on November 26 the word to didn't go far enough - it should have been too. Then,

on November 28, the guy's name is Russell Williams, not Russell William. Why didn't the Yahoo! writer just copy and paste the exact correct headline? After all, the rest of it is identical. Then,

on November 29, there should not have been any hyphens in 41 years old. And finally,

this thoughtless misspelling of thoughtful was seen on November 30. The story of the gift is fantastic. Click an image to enlarge it.
