Drew Carey would be so dissapointed in today's Ceai Complet

WESTLAKE, Ohio (AP) - A Cleveland-area principal says he's embarrassed his students got proof of their "educaiton" on their high school diplomas.

Westlake High School officials misspelled "education" on the diplomas distributed last weekend. It's been the subject of mockery on local radio.

Principal Timothy Freeman says he sent back the diplomas once to correct another error. When the diplomas came back, no one bothered to check things they thought were right the first time.

The publisher has reprinted the diplomas a second time and sent them to the 330 graduates.
Wait, so they spelled it wrong once, sent them back, and they were still misspelled a second time? Nice printing business.

Faulty spell-checker causes embarrassing yearbook typos

June 03, 2008

MIDDLETOWN (AP) — A computerized spell-checker run amok christened several Pennsylvania high school students with new — and in some cases unflattering — last names.

Middletown Area High School's yearbook listed Max Zupanovic as "Max Supernova," Kathy Carbaugh as "Kathy Airbag" and Alessandra Ippolito as "Alexandria Impolite," just to name a few.

"It was kind of funny, but kind of rude at the same time," Ippolito said.

Sounds like Greg was yearbook editor.

I don't understand TJ, did one of the students end up with herpes?

"Uhhhh.. the name's Dave Clinger, but my friends call me Dave "Zinger", on account of my awesome, awesome zings!"

Greg, you're up...

The Nats have lost three straight home games to the SF Giants. That's a very bad thing. Barry Zito even beat them.

Just to clarify, the teams that the Tampay Bay Rays have fought include The New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays. Between winning and fighting, things have gotten a lot saucier for their six thousand fans.

They're methodically brawling their way through the AL East. I hear that Kazmir has a fastball ready for Melvin Mora's head. It's even more amazing that they've been this abrasive since losing to Dukes to the Nats.

It's always entertaining to see your pitcher and catcher about to kill each other...on the mound...in the middle of an inning.

Dennis said...

Yeah, the Nats need to seriously fast track some of these pitching draft picks they've used the last couple years...I have a feeling the hitting will suck for the foreseeable future, so if they want any chance of competing for a division title, it's gotta come from young live arms.

1. "Max Supernova" is waayyy better than any "real" name. He should keep it.

2. I think we all know Geoff Butt.

Not surprisingly, Jason Caffey, he of the ten kids by eight different women, is completely broke and has filed for bankruptcy.

Caffey's last contract was a 7 yr/$35 mil deal (in 1999).

last week, i had a group of kids spell "intelligence" wrong on a piece of easel paper where they were proclaiming their "intellegence."
