Author Month: The Funniest Oops

Google Image Search

This one will be pretty easy.  We all make mistakes.  Some typos are memorable and haunt us for the rest of our lives.  Others are easily forgotten.  Clearly, it’s more fun to talk about the first category.

So, what are some of mine?

  • ‘Clear across the clearing’.  My editor threatened to fly to my house and beat me with her Kindle over this one.
  • ‘Kicked in the grown’ happened a few times.
  • ‘We have to travel across the tomatoes’ . . . I was yelling out groceries while writing.  Stuff like this happened a lot in the past.

There was one that I did a lot in Do I Need to Use a Dragon?, but I can’t remember what it was at this time.  It was a bad one too.  There was a phrase I a few times and I kept spelling a word wrong.  It became dirty.  If I remember it, I’ll add it.

So, what are your funniest typos?

  1. I remember one. “He shut the refrigerator with a loud bang.” I still have nightmares over that one.

    I will write the word that it should have been. You can guess the typo based on it: public. Autocorrect has corrected me several times.

    One of my teaching colleagues likes to tell the story about being in the computer lab during Open House. The room is full of parents and kids. A male student (guessing about 4th grade) is playing a game on the computer and gets to a certain level in the game and earns a prize. He yells out, “Mr. Lentz! Mr. Lentz! I get to name an orgasm after myself.”

    Of course, the room goes deathly silent as the parents stare in wonder. “Did I hear what I think I heard?”

    The teacher looks at the excited student and says, “That’s ORGANISM, Jeff.”

  6. Have a good wee … um, maybe I meant week?!? 😂 Hilarious post, Charles, and one I’m sure we can all relate to. I seem to make more typos as I get older. Thanks for sharing 💕🙂

  7. I’m one of those who can’t remember mine. I had a good one responding to Joan Hall just yesterday, but can’t remember what it was. I seem to make more as I get older.
