Fun With The News Break: AP Headline From A Buggy Wordprocessor
AP ^ | 3/19/10 | Reaganesque

Posted on 03/19/2010 11:55:17 AM PDT by Reaganesque

These are intense times. We are assaulted with bad news constantly. So, as a service to my fellow Freepers, I thought that maybe I could present a current story in a more tolerable manner. What if the news came from a wordprocessor that has a bug that automaticaly replaces all of the "e"s in a document with the letter "o". Read the following exactly as it is typed and see if this helps.

Doms hoad to Whito Houso Sat. as hoalth voto looms

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Prosidont Barack Obama is bringing Domocratic lawmakors to tho Whito Houso on Saturday - tho ovo of a crucial voto on his hoalth caro ovorhaul. Obama wants to mako a last push for his top domostic priority aftor moro than a yoar of dobato.

When my eldest son was born, or actually, several weeks before, I sent out a test email to the list of friends and family who I wanted to have notified quickly after the birth. Thinking that I just couldn’t send out a stupid “test” email, I actually patterned it after the text of the old Emergency Broadcast Service tests they used to do on TV. (”This is a test. This is only a test. Had this been a real birth announcement...”, etc.).

Skip ahead a couple of years to when the twins are getting close to due date. Trying the same basic idea, but with a twist, I sent out a message along the lines of “This This is is only only a a test. test.” which went on for a couple of paragraphs. In retrospect, I should have written software to do that, but I did it by hand, which was much harder than it sounds.

I hate it when they outsource the news reporting and headlines to a non-English speaking Third World hell hole.

WHAT A FIND!! What a wonderful tool. I am going to start translating all of BO pontifications into Moron. I would prefer Jive, but I wouldn't want anyone to think I am biased.

Jive: “In plum a few days, some century-long struggle gots'ta culminate in some histo'ic vote,” Mr. Ah be baaad...

Moron: “In dgust a few days, duuhhhh, a century-long struggle will culminate in a historic bote, uh uh uh,” Mr. Obama said

This actually happened to me after I spilled my ice tea on my keyboard at lunch once. It would type most of the relevant letters but when I went to type the letter ‘p’ it would jump back up to the very beginning like I had hit the home button. So whenever I wanted to use the letter ‘p’ I would actually type ‘the letter that comes after ‘o’. But I would forget and the letter I was writing to my sisters was about shampooing the carpet and my brother-in-law Paul. I've never laughed so hard.
Hilarity just sometimes sneaks right up on ya’! Sometimes we must laugh to keep from crying.
