Speaking in Typo

For beleaguered writers everywhere slaving away at their copy, only to be undone by their editor. Here's John Stewart checking in with Stephen Colbert. Comic genius at work.

Slightly OT...
I hope I'm not offending anyone with link, but here's another example of mangled-English, this time from a non-native speaker. The comments are good too.

I second the remark about amusing results from software translators. I was perusing the Web site of a Japanese camera store and translating through Google, and I looked up prices for my favorite two films, Fuji's Provia and Velvia. It took me a moment to realize that what I really wanted was "Pro Beer" and "Bell Beer."

By the way, jampak's comment had me laughing out loud, which is quite an accomplishment. Thank you!
