Ships Aren't the Only Thing Passing in the Night

dallas_shits.jpg

This has absolutely nothing to do with advertising and everything to do with our love for typos. So it is with our pleasure we present the Dallas Observer's likening of Dallas Cowboy quarterbacks' performance, present and future, to two shits passing in the night. We offer our condolences and complete sympathy with the email tirade you are now currently experiencing from voracious readers who'd rather bitch about your typos than laugh at their humor.

As a cowboys fan and master of the typo, the err is as funny as it is tragically poignant .

Agreed, I was at that game chanting Romo, then, well you know..

Methinks perhaps, this is no typo. The Observer can be just as snarky as Adrants and doesn't censure it prose for delicate ears. (Or eyes if you happen to check the "special" classifieds in the back 20 pages. Not that I ever do that. In public)

I would bet that this isn't a typo. Otherwise, why hasn't it been fixed?

I'm still beaming over this part: "... Monday's 36-22 implosion against the New York Giants..."

And who am I to question the Observer's editorial style when they're clearly just trying to tell it like it is?

As a longtime eagle fan, I can attest to what daveednyc is saying, there really is no typo. But they had the number of players wrong - its not two its three - TO is a huge SH..!
