More Fun With Typos

Funniest typo ever in one of my student papers this afternoon. Actually, second funniest, as the first funniest typo ever was last fall when Adam, a lovable intelligent young man who can't spell for shit, accidentally spell-checked the gospel of Jesus into the gossip of Jesus not once but twice.

This one? We recently read an excerpt from "The Ethic of Compassion" by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Courtney accidentally titled her response paper to it, "The Ethnic of Compassion." Doubly hysterical because, of course, the Dalai Lama is Tibetan, and because Courtney is the only black student in class.

Politically incorrect, but funny as hell.
