Mutineers vs Mutant Ears

Spell check can only take you so far. Check out this typo from one website trying to post the lyrics to "Rotten Town" from Ludo's latest album. Today's post is a cautionary tale.

Lyrics posted on the hack site:
"The mutant ears are plotting against the captain as I'm rotting in the goo"

Yep, that is supposed to say (The mutineers are plotting) of course since it is Ludo it took some research to confirm that its a typo.


  1. Maybe they were using voice recognition. As much as I love that tool, it can create some pretty funny mistakes, kind of like the game Mad Gab, if you've ever played it.

  2. I agree, Linda. Some of the voice recognition comes away with some crazy stuff. I get the voice recognition for my voicemail, and it's just a good thing that I have the actual message to listen to in some cases.

  3. The thing missing here is how hard Donna and I laughed when we found that little gem. I can quite recreate the moment here, but it went something like this: "The mutant WHAT? HahahahHAAAHAHAHAHEHEHEHEheheheheEHAHAHAH!!!!... Those idiots..."

    Okay, I added the idiots part just now, but you get the picture.
