  • This is an early favorite for 2009’s Typo of the Year. The Daily Universe, a student paper at BYU, recalled and trashed the full printing (18,000 copies) of its Monday edition after discovering a typo. Notably, it was a typo that could have offended the Mormon chruch. The paper issued a brief apology and also published a lengthy article to explain the error. The apology:

    In printed copies of Monday’s Daily Universe, due to a spelling error in a photo caption, the word “apostles” was replaced with a different word. The Daily Universe apologizes to the Quorum of the Twelve and our readers for the error.

    >>The "different word" was "apostates."
