Take On Me

I'm such a wuss, I teared up like 800 times during the finale of Chuck. But the biggest misty-eyed moment of all, for me, was the triumph of Jeffster!

Proofreading fails aren't limited only to menus, signs, awnings, and cheap ads for local businesses in pennysavers. Sometimes they show up in the presumably vetted (but obviously not) text of glossy entertainment magazines with circulation numbers in the millions.
