We hate it when there’s a typo in the first paragraph of a story and so does Kristopher. The grain farmer, machinist and stop-motion animator was apoplectic when he alerted us to a missing “in” in the following sentence from Paul Dechene’s interview with Mythbuster Adam Savage: “The show that basically reinvented science education on the television … is [in] its 11th season on Discovery Channel.”
Actually Kristopher was super friendly. The ACAD grad wins a Typo Wiener T-shirt and $10, which he invested in Bushwakker’s Mistletoe ale. It was fun meeting him and talking about Ray Harryhausen, The Brothers Quay, NFB animation and his grandfather, a loyal Prairie Dog reader (and hello!).
