Amusing typo of the day

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 3:43 pm

A rather amusing typo from a page on the University of Chicago bookstore’s website referring to the work of psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (what a name, eh?):

Professor Csikszentmihalyi explores why creative people are often seen as eelfish and arrogant (even though they are not) and reveals that the idea of the tortured genius is largely a myth.

“Eelfish”? Glub glub…


  1. I wonder if creative people would take that as a compliment…

  2. Most of the creative people I’ve talked to deny their eelfish-ness. Though sometimes I’m mistaken for a cod, m’self– but that’s another story… :-p

  3. Heh, go figure. Somebody else noticed this typo too.
