Spelling is the worst! With tools like spell check on our computers and devices today, many of us often forget how to actually spell anything. Well, spelling errors have become a bit of a trend in the news lately.
From the 12-year-old kid who lost Final Jeopardy because he spelled “Emancipation Proclamation" incorrectly, to the hilarious ESPN mistake where they listed a Japanese Little Leaguer's favorite singer as "Wandai Wrection" instead of the obvious, One Direction, it seems spelling mistakes are definitely a prevalent issue.
While many spelling mistakes aren't due to a lack of intelligence, rather carelessness and an absence of copy-editors, I can't help but find humor in some of the major errors we've seen lately. Just one wrong letter can take the meaning of a word and change it into something completely different. Sometimes, they're so ridiculous, you can't help but think: how the heck could anyone have missed that!? Well, they have, and we're thankful for it.
Here are 25 of the worst public spelling errors that we've ever seen:
