Hey, John, incoming!

So I was packaging up subs to send out tomorrow, and I may have committed the tyop of the century:

"Gordon Van Gender"

...glad I caught that one before I hit print.

*SPUTTER*
Could have been worse, Bear. You could have addressed it to Gordon van Gelded.

Just sayin'.

(I guess this means I can forgive myself for omitting the period after Ms. on that one submission, huh?)
Bwahahah!

Both of those are keyboard cleansing time.
*giggles!*

I have typed 'cunt' when I meant to type 'count' before. Boy, was my face red!

Ouch. That make me snort my soft drink through my nose. You're a dangerous typoist.
I can see it now... stories of the legendary literary boo-boos uncaught by automation... an entire series... we'll call it: "TALES OF THE SPELLCHECKER."

-- Steve's wondering if he can get away with making a "and now you'll write it and we'll split the credit" joke, too.
That's what Spellfecker is for.
Better "Gordon Van Gender" instead of "Gordon Van Gelded", right? I think he'd take a lot less offense at the former...
I tink I got spam from him once.
Then again, at this point you're well-known enough that he might've thought you were teasing him...

That's

almost as good as "Help me Obi can o' beans, your my only hope." It's an oldie but a goodie.

I do so love the power of doing copy-editing :)

That's how everyone should have addressed the F&SF slush bomb!
It's a genre-wide case of staircase wit!
Definitely something you would have got male about. :)
