One I saw in a computer science exam today. Bad handwriting rather than typo, but still...
"A hard dick must be inserted into the slot."

My favorite is an ad for one of those throw-away newspapers. It advertised a grandfather clock for sale, only they left out the L in clock. :)

And they unwittingly penned the perfect erotica blurb!

I hope I'm not the only one who does find the word "insert" kind of erotic.

Considering our planet is slightly over-populated, 'outserts' - although not quite so erotic - tend to result in fewer babies.

More erotic than "delete" for sure.  :)

I remember laughing for a long time about the man who was supposed to splayed out on the sofa, but was actually sprayed onto the sofa!

That Kancas City alleged typo, btw, is not real. It went around social media a month or so back, followed by a picture of the real sign before it had been photoshopped.

"He realized he had to go rouge."

I've had my fair share of heartache, but going rouge? Nah.
I lost count of how many people in World of Warcraft spell rogue as 'rouge' and most of them play the class. I make fun of their 'colorful, face-painted backstabbers!'  :P
Sad thing is, they think it's spelled that way.

I was reading a book once that referred to the "Pyramids at Gaza" and I just had to put it down.

From Leno headlines: Whip up a quick meal from things you find in your panty!

Laboriously typed on my tablet.
