American DJ Flips Out Over Spelling Error on His Platinum Record

This is a little like throwing rocks in a glass house. I will be the first to admit that many of the articles I post on this site contain far too many spelling, grammar and layout errors. My only defence–if that’s what you can call it–is that I post a lot of stuff in a short period of time and don’t take the time to proofread everything. And since I don’t have anything like an editor–there’s only a couple of us working on this site and we all do it for fun, so the concept of hiring someone is out of the question–the errors slip through.

No need to comment on the above, by the way. I’m well aware of the issue and I regularly feel shame and embarrassment.

That being said, I feel for American DJ Dillion Francis who worked all his life to achieve success. When he was finally presented with a platinum award for one of his singles, he noticed a problem. (Via Danny)

    Was it deliberate that you misspelled his name in the last paragraph of your post? Either way, I found it pretty funny.
