It appears I handed out the Typo of the Month award too soon.
Yesterday I gave the award to the University of Texas at Austin, but it appears Mitt Romney’s campaign staff is more deserving. The top prize should definitely go to the campaign for introducing us to the typo “Amercia.”
This creative version of America slipped by proofreaders for the campaign’s official new iPhone app.
And hilarity ensued.
The free app lets people place the “A Better Amercia” text over their own photos. Many jumped at the chance to display this misspelled text over images, including other typos, on Tumblr.
Even when this typo gets corrected, these images will live on. That certainly deserves special recognition.
