Funniest Spelling Mistakes and Typos that Will Make you Laugh

It seems like spelling is such a minor issue these days, and we tend to ignore it. We all have an autocorrection function in our smartphones and computers. However, it is one of the most challenging issues we face in business. Poor spelling can ruin your professional reputation. According to a survey, four in five hiring managers automatically discard a resume with spelling errors. A second study found that 79% of recruiters and human resource managers said spelling and grammatical mistakes were the most significant “deal breakers” in the job hunt.

The ability to spell correctly takes time and effort for most people, except those with excellent visual memories. In most cases, simply seeing a word or reading it repeatedly isn’t enough to enable us to spell it correctly. We need to learn to spell actively. However, many people associate the ability to spell with intelligence. As with reading and writing, some people need more practice than others to develop their spelling skills. The critical thing to understand when we attempt to spell a word, even if we are wrong, is that we do so as a way of applying what we know of the English language to print; that is, forming a theory, or hypothesis, about the way it should be spelled. We are more likely to remember an amendment or correction to our guess if we have a theory about something than if we have never tried it. Therefore, guessing helps us learn.

Errors are perfectly normal, and that is what makes us human. There’s no shortage of spelling errors around us from “Dognuts” to asking you to pay a fee before existing. But as naturally as errors arise, so do laughs when performing a spelling check. Here are some hilarious spelling mistakes and typos that will make you laugh and confident that you are not alone in this game.
