20160204_220815When I was checking out last Saturday’s Globe & Mail I found a pretty major boo-boo in a weekly column 2014 Giller Prize-winning author Sean Michaels has where he discusses music he’s been listening to lately in relation to broader issues that are playing out in society.

Anyone want to play along by identifying the boo-boo themselves?

  1. Aw, give the guy a break: he wasn’t even born until 14 years after the album came out. Plus, where is his copy editor?

  2. Spellcheck (aka G&M copy editing) isn’t intuitive enuf to catch errors like that one, but maybe Art, Neil, and Colonel Sanders will inspire such a revolution together.

  3. Copy editors are live human beings who know their language and culture. I mourn their passing.

  4. Some friends and I used to have fun with a game when we were younger where we would substitute the first name of a person with the first name of someone else who shared the same last name. The further removed the substitute person was from the person you were referring to in terms of career or whatever the wittier you were regarded as being.

    There’d be a mention of PC politician Kim Campbell, for instance, then right away it would be Glen Campbell, Hugh Campbell, Neve Campbell, Black Angus Campbell, etc.

  5. Lol it always does. And it does. That game also is nasty when it ends with hot choclate. That’s deadly. Dutch oven.
