Vommittee

Do committees make you sick? At first glance it would seem that’s what they do for the author of this article, but the probable explanation is simpler. Typos are an inseparable part of writing in spite of all the spellcheckers in the world and some just look like unconscious puns. When I realized that V is just next to C and more to the centre – an ideal place for creating a typo – it occurred to me to try and Google the word. I’ve got 24 hits, and a few of them really made me smile:

My favourite? A real beauty:
