What is the funniset typo you've ever made? Mine has to be the following. I was in my first year of university and was talking to a friend online, saying how much i was enjoying it. I accidentally said
"I'm sitting here smiling my face off having the greatest wee of my life" instead of week.
I wasn't taking the piss! (groan...)
Oh how we laughed at that one...I've never quite managed to live it down.

Well, I've never really been so anally-retentive as to catalogue my each and every typographical error.

Rather, I am anal enough to pre-empt the making of such errors in the first place :rolleyes:

Are you saying I am? Surely if you made an error and spotted it you'd remember it. It's all a bit of fun anyways...

I once typed "Hell is for herpes" instead of the name of one of my fave bands

Actually, no. I'm so anal, that my brain pre-emptively erases all memory of any verbal transgressions, in order that I may immediately pick up the pieces and move on with my life. It's an unenviable state of affairs, I can tell you

Mine would prob me "he's feeling ****" instead of "sick". A direct outcome of having the 's' key next to the 'd'. Surely they should place letters on the keyboard so you can't make dumbass typos. I don't know.

Allow me to present the AOLese "Abridged" Keyboard:

Foolproof; and exclusively for idiots. Now there's a paradox, if ever there was.

i didn't make the typo but on a program where there was a list of our names for some important end of the year thing my friend Meredith's name had been typoed into "Mereditty" so Mereditty got called up on stage and the poor girl had to live with her new nickname until graduation 5 years later.

I have a nasty habit of typing 'just a sex' instead of 'just a sec' ... it's alright with the right people ... but with others it's bloody annoying :p:

Well i don't have any major ones i can remember, but i remember once [email protected] on here (a mate from college), wrote embassassing instead of embarrassing, which i thought sounded like he wanted to have gay sex with a fish, which i found amusing.

Some bloke on gamefaqs, whose native language wasn't english, made a rather horrendous mistake. He couldn't spell eject properly, and the spellchecker kindly changed his sentence so it read

" How do I ejacualate?"

Not typing, this one, but actual writing.

A year 11 RE class. Attempting a direct quote from Mark's Gospel, a girl writes of Jesus:

"He saved otters, but he could not save himself!"

Digressing further, "The Bowlers Holding, the batsman's Willey" is a classic bit of cricket commentary.

This thread also reminds me of that episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm when there's a typo in the obituary Larry puts in a newspaper, and "beloved Aunt" becomes "beloved C*nt."
