Tell Us Now: 20 Hilarious Yet Life-Ruining Typos

Typos – the unfortunate side effect (or maybe the INTENDED effect??) of autocorrect. And also of clumsy fingers not having the lithe grace of a world class pianist, cello player or venomous snake handler. 

We’ve all been in that situation of texting our friends and family about what a ducking bad time that party was, or how full of shot our annoying coworker is. Those are the safe typos. But once in a while, they are, to say the least, less than safe. Typos are just an annoying inconvenience of our modern living, until they’re not. They’re funny and we can all laugh at them because really all they are is just honest mistakes! Until they cause some issues. We asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What was the worst typo you've ever made?” 

The answers were hilarious, even though we felt your second-degree humiliation. Here are 20 stories that made us chortle and chuckle.
