There's a funny thread going on at Testy Copy Editors about an AP spell-check-induced error. Alistair Hodgett became Alligator Hedge, which is pretty funny.

It reminds me of a time when Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi's name was changed to "Janitor Koizumi," and Princess Masako's name to "Princess Mask." Looks as if other papers have made the error, too.
