Exhausted fingers

“In yesterday’s column about badminton, I misspelled the name of Guatemalan player Kevin Cordon. I apologize. In my defense, I want to note that in the same column I correctly spelled Prapawadee Jaroenrattanatarak, Poompat Sapkulchananart and Porntip Buranapraseatsuk. So by the time I got to Kevin Cordon, my fingers were exhausted. “

-Dave Barry, correcting a misspelling in a column published by the Miami Herald.

This and a round-up of many other noteable media errors and corrections from 2008 are covered at Regret The Error.
