"A recipe for tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto has proved a little too spicy for Penguin Australia, after a misprint suggesting that the dish required 'salt and freshly ground black people' has left the publisher reaching for the pulping machine, rather than the pepper grinder."

"Clive [Barker]'s idea of a great time is to have a nightmare about a woman with three heads and no skin who flays your body with a pitchfork. To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

That's funny. It reminds me of this bit from Curb Your Enthusiasm:

When Robert Kline interviewed the remaining Monty Pythons, the guys brought along an urn with Graham Chapman's ash's
 Yes, it was knocked over, and yes, Terry Jones broke out the vacuum cleaner.
Graham, of course, would have approved.

Spell check is a wonderful thing. Pity it can't tell when the word is wrong.

My question is whether this is an error or somebody's joke that slipped past the proofreaders. I've seen it happen in newspapers. It happened to me many years ago. Nothing serious, just a headline that suggested (if you have a dirty mind) that you could call a certain local businesswoman for a blowjob. Thankfully, it passed for a typo, and it had gone past many other people after me who failed to notice anything.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
