When I read the title of this entry the first time the only typoed word I saw was 'fnuny.' It wasn't until after reading the rest of the paragraph that I noticed the whole title was wrong.

While the concept is true, Cambridge University did no such study. Maybe they didn't misspell Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, after all.

I wouldn't want to type like that, since I'd end up with little red lines under all my words. I'm too anal-retentive to send off a post like taht.
