Web Bloopers

BBSpot specialises in satire about politics, technology, current affairs. It’s of very mixed quality. What can be quite good, though, is the BBloopers section, a place for people to post amusing screenshots captured from web pages.

See this one, for example – note the area highlighted in red – or this one.

Some traditional newspapers have a large front-page photo and a large front-page headline, often not from the same story, and I’m often bemused by the juxtaposition. I guess such things will get much more common as we get more and more electronic syndication.

Some bloopers, on the other hand, just result from an over-enthusiastic spell-checker, one suspects.
