Four Amazing Typos

1. Vatican Coin Typo - Let's get right to it. This post was born this morning when I was on the elliptical and heard this bit of ridiculousness - "In honor of the first year of Pope Francis' papacy, the Vatican issued a commemorative medal Tuesday. Just one problem: The Vatican misspelled the name of Jesus on the medal."

Apparently, Jesus was spelled with an 'L' instead of a 'J.'

What would Lesus do?  Forgive, of course!
What would Lennifer Fernicola Ronay do?  Laugh.
And blog about it.

2. Kris Jenner may not be your cup of tea but she's not a murderer - Just last week, I noticed this typo.

Typo 2

3. Did she get fries with that? Check out the photo caption.

Typo 3

4. Auto Replace is awesome. What could go wrong? Uh ... this.

Apparently, the American Family Association has a strict policy of always replacing the word "gay" with the word "homosexual" on its Christian news outlet.

So, when a man named Tyson Gay won the men's 100 meters final at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials, the article read:

Tyson Homosexual was a blur in blue, sprinting 100 meters faster than anyone ever has.

"It means a lot to me," the 25-year-old Homosexual said. "I'm glad my body could do it, because now I know I have it in me."

In the spirit of Roses, here's to
backspace, delete, spell check and old school erasers
because, of course,
To err is human.
To forgive ... like Lesus.
