Typo Wiener

typoAllan Quigley

Typing is HARD. Try to peck out a basic word like “from” and at least half the time it’s going to come out “form”. That’s how it works for our 10-thumbed editor, anyway. Fortunately, Allan Quigley was one of several readers who spotted Whitworth’s “from/form” typo in one of our headlines last issue and, because his last name starts with a “Q” and that’s cool, he wins $10 and a T-shirt.

Allan says the cash will go towards popcorn at the Rainbow Cinema. We deem this acceptable.

Allan is a semi-retired adult education professor who taught at Penn State and St. Francis Xavier University. He and his wife, Linda, have lived happily back here in their home province since 2007.

Allan would love for his fellow Prairie Dog readers to take a moment to think about and appreciate the many heroic seniors who strive so hard to make Regina a better city. A fine idea. Let’s all do that! [Official moment of appreciation ensues]

IF YOU THINK MISTYPING “FROM” IS BAD, YOU SHOULD SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHENEVER WE TRY TO TYPE “PUBLIC” Spot a typo in this issue and e-mail the details to [email protected] (write TYPO in the subject field). Please include the page it was on, and the article and sentence it was in. Typos include misspelled words, garbled grammar and general gibberish. Factual errors don’t count but formatting mistakes do. To be eligible, typos must be in editorial content such as articles, listings, headlines and photo cutlines. Next deadline is Wednesday, April 23 at noon. The winner (who will be notified by phone or e-mail) must be available to come to our office on the Scarth Street pedestrian mall Friday, April 25 to collect their prize and pose for a picture. Good luck!
