"Freshly Ground Black People": World's Worst Typo Leaves Publisher Reeling

An Australian publisher is reprinting 7,000 cookbooks over a recipe for pasta with "salt and freshly ground black people."

Penguin Group Australia's head of publishing, Bob Sessions, acknowledged the proofreader for the Pasta Bible should have picked up the error, but called it nothing more than a "silly mistake."

The "Pasta Bible" recipe for spelt tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto was supposed to call for black pepper.

I remember something about you being able to google "white people steal cars" and the suggestion was did you mean "black people steal cars". That got changed really fast.

I suppose spell check worked

Yeah, that spell-checker works sooooo well...
