Fun with compulsive copyediting

I should be editing a paper right now, but it's ever so much more fun to edit other people's writing.

For example, the fine people at Rohrspatz und Wollmeise, makers of supremely beautiful yarn, have a most unfortunate error on their site. The English version says this:

The company name is the appropriate alliance of the beautiful products in steel by Rohrspatz and the wooly ideas of the wool tit.

Wool tit. Heh.

That's so funny! I hadn't noticed that before :)

I think it's fitting. Aren't all knitters suckling at the metaphorical wool tit?
