"Mohel Read" and Other Disturbing Typos

When Googling *Mobile Read* (as it were), I'm sometimes guilty of typing "Mohel Read," a mistake which would alarm my rabbi if I actually had a rabbi. I don't even want to think about the kind of thing which a mohel might be especially equipped to read.

Still, when perusing published work, I often find typos with similarly surreal implications. How about you? Care to share any jawbreakers?

Just today I found myself disturbed by the culinary implications of a reference in the White Plains Gazette to the local "Chef of Police."

Well, I'm currently bemused by a query in one of the music sections on Yahoo Answers. In its entirety, it reads, "How does a skull benefit a performer?"

Someone has already mentioned Hamlet...

I find that typo highly fun.

Since having a skull allows one to retain the shape of one's head during a performance, I'd say the skull itself is crucial -- unless, of course, the performer is a Portuguese man o' war.

Somehow I'm picturing a member of Davy Jones' crew in Pirates of the Caribbean II now...
