My Blackberry isn’t working, and a crazy typo

January 28, 2011 · 0 comments

Since it’s Friday, I thought we could take a day off from all the normal marketing and management ideas I share, and have a little fun.

First, here’s what I call the Friday typo of the week. I woke up this morning around 3 a.m. and couldn’t fall back asleep, so I started surfing the news sites. This story (pictured here) on FoxNews caught my attention because the photo of Tiger Woods didn’t seem to match the content about baby tigers. When I clicked the link, sure enough, I was forwarded to story about real baby tigers in Sumatra. I had to wonder how the silly picture of Tiger Woods and one of his girlfriends got attached to this story. My hunch is that this was a prank between a couple of employees at FoxNews… and all of a sudden, oops — its live! I can also imagine that shortly thereafter the ‘poop really hit the fan’ because this “typo” vanished in just a couple of minutes — but not before I was able to grab a quick screenshot.

And secondly, here is a hilarious video about an older fella whose Blackberry is not working…

I hope you enjoyed these humorous little diversions. Have a great weekend, everybody!!
