Hilarious Spelling Fails That Prove The Power of Proofreading

It’s easy to write something and never go back to edit it. After all, there are only so many hours in a day to get things done, and in many jobs, if you throw something onto the page, often nobody will clock your errors. No matter your job, it’s usually a good idea to know how to spell, and if you don’t, it’s a good idea to have someone who can spell-check your work. Our brains aren’t necessarily wired to pick up on spelling errors immediately, especially when we’re reading something quickly. 

Luckily for us, spelling mistakes don’t always come off as solely amateurish. Misspellings can truly be hysterical if the error is just off-kilter enough. You’re in for a real laugh when you find writers misspelling well-known idioms and phrases. If you’re a grammar n*zi, English teacher, or just plain literate, you’ll get a real kick out of the following spelling mishaps.
