This writing offends me

Hey, Yahoo!, there needs to be a comma after the year in the date of February 29, 2011, but more importantly, that date did not even exist! Also, near the end of the above excerpt (which happens to be the article's opening paragraph) there is a has that should be a he - that is quite the misspelling. Also also, offense should be offensive. From "Urban Outfitters' St. Patrick’s Day Merchandise Offends Irish" on Yahoo! Canada Shine on March 6, 2012. Then,

the second paragraph quotes an offending phrase from one of the shirts, but

one can see from the accompanying image that Yahoo! left out a word. Then,

underneath the image, a misplaced apostrophe turns the correct Urban Outfitters into the incorrect Urban Outfitter.
