I then thought the typo might make an interesting pun, as in the following sentence: "Margaret's obsession with Christian-themed jewelry might best be described as 'crucifixation.'"
Ever the wordsleuth, I Googled "crucifixation," and was surprised to see that the term generated 20,000 hits. There are short stories, Web memes, and even a death metal song by the band Deicide entitled "Crucifixation." Here is the chorus, in case you were curious:
Crucifixation - Thee unholy denominationsYawn. I didn't say the song had any merit, just that it featured this accidental word.
Crucifixation - Holy termination
You will give praise to Satan
Impaled vibration, Crucifixation
Anyways, I have now spent thirty minutes musing over a typographical error, and I suspect that this literary sojourn only served to put me further behind the proverbial eight-ball in my work.
