Car crashes into poll…according to the Herald

Surely they are taking the piss. Maybe it was David Shearer’s missing poll results they crashed into.

      I hope Cam sends them an invoice for correctional services rendered.

    Bloody ignorant, illiterate journos.

    FFS – on the Stuff website the other day, I saw a headline which had TWO spelling errors in it.

      They were trying to outdo the Herald Thor, they failed, they needed four to win that one.

    Noooooooooooooooo! This is the result of the lack of old-fashioned English Grammar lessons in our schools.

    See, unscientific polls can kill,lets BAN them!

  • Rodger T

    Lets send this to the Herald,

    • Steve (North Shore)

      Send it to the Schoolteachers as well, they are responsible for misspelling by not correcting the students.
      I like it, it’s going straight on my Facebook

    Shit how long had the “poll’ been in the country, haven’t meet many polls but there seems to be a lot of germans around at the moment.

  • Rodney

    It’s just a dumbarse spelling mistake. Nowhere near some of the doozies you’ve made. But who cares? How can you see anything of significance in this? Talk about making shit up. Hypocrite.

    • Travis Poulson

      Making shit up? Are you suggesting the screenshot is a fake?

      • Rodney

        No, you’re right. Sorry about that. Not making shit up at all. More like trying to make shit up out of nothing. You decide a grammatical error’s worthy of a blog post? Talk about desperate. Fucktard.

        • Travis Poulson

          Fuck off then if you don’t like it. Look in the mirror, you’ll see who the fucktard is. Dumbest cunt on the face of the planet complaining about the content of a blog he/she/it isn’t forced to read.

          What an A-grade cocksmoker.

            ha ha, ignore my earlier comment on another thread. Now here’s the Trav we all know :) With regard to poor grammar, we get a free pass here because we don’t get paid to write (including Trav), but a reporter should be and is accountable for errrors of fact or punctuation. Don’t even get me started on the quality of staff at Yahoo news.

          • Travis Poulson

            Yes, after reading your other comment I was wondering if you’d seen this…

    Don’t worry, it may have been a Horizon or Reid research Pole, no live wires there at all.
