The Tombow Funny Typos Giveaway

Aren’t typos embarrassing? I recently emailed the Avery Products with a misspelling in it. I was mortified! Oh how I wished I had proof-read it just ONE more time before sending!

Truthfully, my small typo was nothing compared to some of the awesome typos & spelling mistakes I’ve found & shared for your enjoyment below. There’s just something about a mistake being published in a newspaper, printed on a sign, or even iced onto a cake to make it extra funny.

Typos have been around a long time

A 1631 version of the Bible had a pretty bad typo, instructing “Thou shalt commit adultery.”

A Bold Headline of a Mistake …

Poor Eric wasn’t on Drugs

I called my order into the bakery …

The cake was ordered for a going away party. He told them to write:  ”Best Wishes Suzanne” and underneath that write “We will miss you”. {LOL!}

Even Harvard makes mistakes

It’s never too soon to perpare for college
Oh, the irony!

But it’s good to plan ahead …

After all, you might get a scolarship

{Cringe!}

One day we were driving by there & noticed a sign they had sitting out advertising their “special” of the day~it said & I quote, “HOMADE HOTDOGS 2 FOR $1.00!” instead of “HOMEMADE”~LOL! We laugh about that 2 this day, in fact I’m pretty sure they still use that sign!

  8. Those were hilarious! My typo mishap was when I was texting my dad and he is a pastor. I sent him a text and said that we will be late for church. My stupid autocorrect sent this text to him instead: “dad, we will be gay for sure”…lol…he called me right after that text sent and asked me what I was talking about! I said that we will be late for church! I heard a sigh of relief from him…lol…so now I call instead of texting him…lol!
