Typo of the Day

I couldn't let this one pass without sharing it:

All of us in theorgy have at least one week of vacation time.


It should be "theory," of course, rather than "the orgy." But I must confess the temptation to leave it in the book for at least one more round of corrections. Read my colleague Dan Reid's intriguing history of bogus dictionary entries here for more misadventures of impish editors.

If you're the author, don't worry: I'll correct the error. If you googled "orgy" and came here by mistake, shame on you.

Hee Hee. You made me laugh out loud to myself again (see facebook status for explaination - oops did I just admit to having a facebook profile outloud).

Oh, and what if I just came for some wholesome encouragement? (Don't worry, I didn't. I mean, it's not like I don't want wholesome encouragement. And it's not like I think you can't give wholesome encouragement. It's... I think I'll just stop now.)

(Now, how weird is this? My word verification is "wtorgi"... is this some cosmic joke? :)
