Egineer* (for Engineer*)

The Powerpuff Girls weren't so much born as engineered by their egghead father Professor Utonium. He was trying to create "the perfect little girl" when he accidentally dumped some "Chemical X" into the usual mixture of sugar, spice, and everything nice. The feistiest of the cartoon super-trio is the brunette one, Buttercup, voiced by the blonde actress E.G. Daily. Our daily typo this morning is Egineer* and nearly a dozen of 'em were found lurking in OhioLINK, making this a "moderate probability" troublemaker in your catalog and one that should be taken out at your earliest convenience.

Ya know, going through your blog (fantastic by the way) I see that most of these typos could actually pass as just alternate pronunciations of the same words for people who grew up in and around New York City. Is this a good thing? No. But sure does make me laugh. =)
