I used to be able to fix the typo and repost the strip, but that doesn’t seem to work anymore. Yes, I tried.
It’s harder to catch one’s own typos than someone else’s. The writer or letterer knows what they expect to see.
What surprises me is how obsessed and fixated readers become. I find typos in published books a lot. They shouldn’t happen, but they do. But when hardly anyone has anything to say about the gag, because they’re all piling on top of each other to show off how they spotted the mistake, it gets… strange. I hope none of them are the kind to complain if someone tells them they made a grammar error.
