Keming

This is from a few years back. In 2011, our nonprofit organization had philanthropists Kern and Marnie Wildenthal on our Legacy Advisory Board.

 

I sent the printers a .doc file; they are supposed to pull the names out of it as text, and set them into the letterhead. This is from the version I sent:

 

kern

 

and this is what the printers sent back. kem

Actually seeing the name “Kern” mis-kerned made my geeky little heart skip a beat.

 

What made me think of this, and go back to dig it up, was finding a BoingBoing post about this site that glorifies the accidental joys of Keming.
