Some days we all just need a stupid distraction or two.  So I’m sharing this little tidbit with you today:

Recipe Typo Calls for “Freshly Ground Black People” http://bit.ly/adlH9Z

Yessiree  Bob, 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. The recipe for spelt tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto was supposed to call for…black pepper.

“We’re mortified that this has become an issue of any kind.”

The reprint will cost Penguin 20,000 Australian dollars ($18,500), but books already in stores will not be recalled because doing so would be “extremely hard,” Sessions said.

Hmmm, yes I can image that it would be.
