If it's not a right angel, it's a wrong angle

At first it's LA ANGELS, but then it becomes ANGLES - not once but twice. Seen on The Score on April 13, 2013.

I hear he's also a sing

I didn't know anyone could be a golf, let alone be an avid one. From "Free golf for Brad Marchand concussion? Vancouver course apologizes for Volchenkov offer" on Yahoo! Canada Sports on April 13, 2013. Click the image to enlarge it.

Crossing too many Ts

Last month we received coupons in the mail for the Dairy Queen/Orange Julius outlet at Coquitlam Centre. Yes, at Coquitlam Centre. What's more, Coquitlam Centre is on Barnet Highway.

There are probably 11 featured

Here's the headline of the article ("9 Sex Kinks That Are Kind of Dumb" on truTV online on April 9, 2013) and,

here's the third and final intro paragraph to the slideshow, in which readers are told twice that the article features 10 kinks. Click an image to enlarge it.

I see pink, and errors

That is the first sentence of the online article ("Amanda Todd investigation continues" on Coquitlam Now online on April 5, 2013), and it's the same for the print article as well. After reading sixth months instead of six months, would you have kept reading? Right above that sentence,

there is this photo caption. It would be a perfectly fine caption if there were one person - or even one woman - in the photo. However,

this is the photo. Will the real Carol Todd please step forward? Click an image to enlarge it.

Freakish writing

The first error of this article ("Freak accident leads to damages fight with Parks Canada" on CBC News online on April 3, 2013) is the shortened trailer. Then,

preceding should be proceeding. Click an image to enlarge it.

Yahoooooooo! March 2013

What do we want? Errors! When do we want them? Now! Okay. Here are the errors that were detected on the Yahoo! Canada homepage during March 2013. First, on March 11 it was Topanga on the left (correct!) but Toganga on the right (incorrect!). Then,

on March 22 violet should have been violent. Here's the proof! Then,

again on March 22, what Yahoo! states is "a single typo" is the writing of Harper Canada instead of Harper Government. That's no typo. (Article.) Then,

on March 23 Yahoo! declares that an executive died for a boozy mishap. The truth is that the writer foolishly believes that getting deported is the ultimate price one could ever pay. Then,

again on March 23, John Mayer's last name was wrong. Then,

on March 27 takes should have been talks. (Article.) Then,

again on March 27, it's a contingent so it should have been has been operating. Then,

after clicking to the article ("Canadian fighter jets guarding Iceland’s skies as part of unusual agreement" on Yahoo! Canada News on March 27, 2013), the disagreement issue is correct, but Keflavik Air Bace should be Keflavik Air Base. That's it for that! Click an image to enlarge it.

A catacalysmic annoucement

There's an N missing from announcement in the second sentence of "Pedestrian struck by distracted driver in new police video" on CBC News online on March 12, 2013. Then,

three sentences later cataclysmic has one A too many. Click an image to enlarge it.

CBC British Columbia homepagerrors - March 2013

Here we are in a new month, looking back at an old month (March 2013) with a batch of new errors (from the CBC British Columbia homepage). Let's get to it. On March 3, it was Gastown once but not twice. Then,

on March 9, losing in hour's sleep on night in the spring should have been losing an hour's sleep one night in the spring. Then,

on March 12 the is and the second in both shouldn't have been there, and riot shouldn't have been capitalized. Clicking to that article,

this is how the first sentence once looked (at "Olympic hopeful boxer gets 45 days for Stanley Cup riot" on CBC News online on March 12, 2013). Now the is is gone, but the rest is the same. Then,

on March 13 the word for was uncalled for. That's all! Click an image to enlarge it.
