The Best/Worst Typos, Mistakes, and Correrctions of 2012

Typos! We love them, we love to hate them. They make us laugh, they make us cry. They come in many shapes and sizes. And so do those corrections—not always typo-related—added to many a newspaper article when it turns out things weren't written exactly as they should be. It happens to the best of us (fortunately we have the Twitter typo police hanging around to alert us to our embarrassing mistakes). But without those mistakes, wouldn't online (and especially print) life be just a wee bit more boring?

7 Actors Typecast in Bizarrely Specific Roles

Typecasting is nothing new in Hollywood; it's not very surprising, seeing as some actors just look and act like the cliched roles they attract. This phenomenon explains why Meg Ryan has never taken a role as a transvestite vampire, and Meatloaf has never been the object of affection in a romantic comedy.
