Last issue we printed the title of the 1990 Christian Slater film Pump Up The Volume as “Pump Of The Volume”. Oops. Fortunately, laser-eyed Wiener Janielle Ogilvie spotted the error. She wins $10 and a Typo Wiener T-shirt. Thank goodness something good came of this tragedy.
Janielle is a University of Regina student who plans to apply to journalism school. She’s also interested in travelling and is a future Prairie Dog long-distance subscriber. Don’t tell her we’ve got a free website.
She thinks ’90s Christian Slater is “young and handsome.” I wonder if she knows he’ll be in Lars Von Trier’s upcoming Nymphomaniac films.
There’s an excellent chance she’ll spend her prize money on pizza. Congratulations, Janielle!
