In my job I occasionally have to respond to call center forms documenting mis-shipments, missing parts, overages, etc. So, often I end up doing some kind of investigation. One of the forms I got last night stated that somebody would need to "inertigate" the issue.

I'm thinking if I procrastinate enough I will have reached the inert state desired.

Do you have anything similar? Instead of correcting the hoi polloi, let's celebrate the uniqueness.

I've seen a funny one just yesterday here on A|N: "evolution is widely excepted". More a slip than a typo, but it made me smile.

Too funny. This is off topic, but here is my favorite beach sign.

You should post that in the Completely Irrelevant Images Thread. I'd do it myself, but I'd somehow feel like I'd be stealing.
In the same vein, a French minister (Roselyne Bachelot) allegedly declared: "Je suis pour l'égalité des sexes et je prendrai des mesures." ("I'm for sex equality, and I'll take measures" - which can also be understood as "I'll measure them myself").
That's another job I might not mind so much.
I want a job where I can inertigate issues. It's easy to take a position on being inert.
That's the gubbiment job for me!
Once when I was proofreading my mother's resume, I found that she had typed "I have sex years experience". We laughed about that for years.
Picture not coming through for me.
No problem for me.(?) You can also see it at the blog about 1/2 way down the page.
