…Pasties are not pastries?

Pasty

In a recent post about correcting typos online, Stephen J. Dubner quoted from an article in The Economist: “In the hills north east of Mexico City it is not uncommon to find Cornish pasties for sale.”

He adds: They meant to write “pastries” but, considering that miners work really hard, they might also be hoping to encounter the kind of people who go shopping for pasties.

Unfortunately for Stephen, The Economist did not mean to write “pastries”, and to prove it, mailed him a genuine Cornish pasty stuffed with peas, carrots, potatoes and mystery meat.

If only all mistakes were that delicious!
