When Proofreading is Outlawed, Only Outlaws Will Have Proofreaders

And when they say “Limited Edition Collector’s Box,” they ain’t kidding:

Charity-minded callers are getting intercepted by a sex phone line because of a misprint on Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco’s namesake cereal boxes.

The phone number is supposed to connect callers to Feed the Children, which benefits from sales of “Ochocinco’s.” But because the box has the wrong toll-free prefix, they get a seductive-sounding woman who makes risque suggestions and then asks for a credit card number.

That’s odd — when we called and asked for “Honey Nut Toasted,” that’s exactly what we expected.

I will wait here while you all apologize to me for speaking English.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: I have to say, Spike has bigger balls than they even appear on video given his willingness to make his own road.

@mellbell: WTF do you expect, he is a Beaver of Oregon State.

@karen marie: Is Cheryl moving with him?
OMFG, Benedick will be so excited.

This kid is totally doing a Joaquin Phoenix.

Most people may think the sex line phone number is the biggest error on the box, but we wonky editorial types know that it’s actually that stupid apostrophe they added to the name. He doesn’t own all the little Os, dammit!
