As I was reading through the movie reviews in today’s newspaper, I stumbled across a typo that’s so big it really shouldn’t have been overlooked. I took a picture of the whole article so you’ll have to enlarge it to get the full effect, but in essence this is what happened: the review is for the movie “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” and the headline reads, “‘Dairy’ chronicles middle-school horrors.'”
I would guess this is a case of someone relying on spell check rather than actually proofreading. Tisk tisk.
