A suspicious typo

Filed under: Overseen,Spellbound — mighty red pen @ 6:32 pm

Sometimes a typo is just a typo. But sometimes, as in the case of this little tidbit sent by local correspondent Amy, it is an awesome typo.

Spotted here, this typo transforms rather ordinary mailboxes full of suspicious powder into rather more intriguing mailboxes full of suspicious power. What could this power be? The ability to steal your checks? Return your mail unread? Snoop through secret love letters? I wonder.

Come to think of it, I’ve often suspected that my mailbox might have it in for me. Perhaps I should keep a closer eye on it.



  1. I have found some pretty important correspondence in my mailbox from time to time, but I’ve never noted any unknown power radiating from it. I’ll be on the alert for that now. Thanks for your public service in getting the word out!

  2. I’m wondering what “nearly a dozen”: would be. 11? 10? Why not just say that? Maybe they think “nearly a dozen” sounds more impressive than 11.
