I thought his typo gags were predictable, but I guess it's because I'm used to seeing proofreading errors.

One of my favorites is when spellcheck would catch a misspelling of 'inconvenience' and suggest 'incontinence'. When I was sending out emails for customer service oh-so-long-ago, it made me crack up to think of sending them an apology for the incontinence we caused them. :P

Wow. I realize that Poetry Slamming is on the outs but could you guys include something that was written during this decade?
