Typo

If you have ever, like me,
Missed the “r” and hit the “t,”
Addressing some fat blister
As “Mt.” instead of “Mr.,”
I trust you left it unamended?
Splendid.

— J. B. Boothroyd, Punch, 1948

Here is my response:

One day, while writing a letter
Addressed to a foolish manager,
I accidentally typed “t” instead of “g”.
So, “regards” became “retards”, gee!
Then I emailed it uncorrected.
Splendid.

    Haha! I once had a student turn in a paper where auto correct changed genome to gnome, so the “human genome project” was the human gnome project!
