Imagine a word nerd’s worst recurring nightmare

Check out poet Taylor Mali and “The The Impotence of Proofreading.” Yes, it says the twice. That’s kind of the point. You’ll see in this video (which I have to warn you is a teensy bit NSFW, so keep the volume down). Imagine you wrote a paper, and you forgot to proofread it or run spellcheck, and you made a lot of errors, and you turned it in that way by accident, and then your teacher read it front of the class, mistakes and all. It’s like that.
