Right then, let’s put New Market into the GPS and What is a mammouth?

Another day and more Herald Bombs…surely they will be now putting a bounty on the head of the next person who has a piece that appears on Whaleoil.

They seriously need to do something, it is beyond a joke now.

First up a review of a restaurant in “New Market“, which appears to be a new suburb of Auckland previously unheard of and not at all related to these places:

Then¬†apparently¬†there is a “mammouth” blizzard hitting the US east coast:

    Chris Rattue’s Herald item today on SBW (“The bungle in the rumble”) also has a sub-editing clanger… they forgot to edit in the title name and instead put “the precious LVWMQPXS heavyweight belt.”

      I think you’ll find it was a deliberate attempt at irony, referencing the ‘alphabet soup’ nature of the many different boxing “organisations” currently going round.

      Not surprisingly, it was easy to miss this as Rattue’s comments are typically full of unintended irony, as befitting the Village Idiot of world journalism.

        The leader in todays most ironic statements is Veitch on radio this morning, in reference to the SBW farcical boxing match….
        I am against the sport of boxing, or words to that effect.
        mmmmmm he might not like boxing, but his practice of wrestling with women is well documented.

        • Lion_ess

          Kick boxing with the Veitch’s speciality.

    Doesn’t the newspaper software have a **spellcheck** function? It’d take *no time* to run that over the text of the paper to pick up clangers like this.

    • Agent BallSack

      You don’t need spellcheckers when your a “Journalist, Skilled & Trained”

    A “Mammouth” is what Clare Curran opens every time she speaks.

  • Steve (North Shore)

    It’s going to take two generations to sort out this spelling shit out.
    Teachers are to blame, they just can’t fucking teach, end of story
