wobbly spelling

Post by Liesbeth »

have to admit I was procrastinating, but my new iGoogle page made me aware of this breaking news: Typo Vigilantes Banned From National Parks After Vandalizing Historic Marker At Grand Canyon

Oh my. I am not sure what I expected (well, first off I did not expect Morning Musume) but just wow. I am actually pretty happy because I was understanding quite a bit of the Japanese lol.

By the way, just in case anyone was wondering, the white guy they call "sensei" in that clip is Thane Camus who is the grand-nephew of the philosopher Albert Camus. Just remember folks, blood relation does not always matter.
