I'd hammar in the morning. I'd hammar all the way to Ottowa.
No I have not lost my mind (OK at least not in the past few seconds, the previous part of my life is subject to interpretation but I digress). Instead it's been pointed out to me by my darling husband that the art of proofreading in major newspapers is going to hell in a hand basket.
Hammar is apparently a tool used to break into cars in mall parking lots in order to steal holiday gifts. I think most people consider that a HAMMER!!!!
Oh and Ottowa is the capital of Canada. I apologize to my Canadian friends for changing the spelling from Ottawa.
I am not sure what this says about the state of journalism today. For the love of Pete, even I run spellcheck on my blog before I hit publish.
Regardless, all of this makes me think of this routine by Taylor Mali. I hope you enjoy it.
