Not Really an Error'd Error'd

by in Error'd on

Scraping the bottom of the barrel this week, we accepted a couple of submissions that aren't, by any means, Errors. But they're undoubtedly amusing to the likes of those who haunt these pages, and as such, bon appetit.

Diner Dave A. wondered "I wasn't sure if you would really accept this as an Error'd, because it only *looks* like an error, which is why it caught my eye, but it isn't! So, on with the snark: You'd think there'd be Null chance that someone would name a restaurant like this, right? But NO! (Or as YAML would say, Norway!) This really exists -- I haven't been there yet but at the very least its website isn't Null. Maybe two Nulls are like a double negative, making it positively exist?" It doesn't look very filling.

Twicely Done

We received a surfeit of submissions this week. The choices below were selected almost at random, but coincidentally two of them were sent in by regular reader Michael R. to start things off.

Said Michael "Reading CodeSOD on 2023-05-15 made me brush up my knowledge of log. Little did I know that it comes with its own defects. Thank you Google." If you were a mathematician, and wanted to build a wooden table, what else would you use?

Fresh Bugs

Friday comes but once a week, so perhaps you should read this column very very slowly to make it last.

Disoriented David declared "I legitimately was confused while reading this because I got my days of the week mixed up. Too bad they couldn't tell me."

Absolutely Execrable

With your weekly dose of snark, and just one execrable pun, here follows Error'd:

A reader who asked to remain Very Anonymous sent us this suicide note for his reputation. "Somehow, could get the right photo (from Wikipedia, it seems) of the country singer Stonewall Jackson, but ended up with the Confederate general's bio. PS: Please don't ask or judge me as to why I was looking for the lyrics to Jesus Took The Outlaw Out Of Me." I'm sure we really don't want to know.
