Queen of Denamrk Margrethe II arrives at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Congress at the Opera house in Copengahen October 1, 2009….
Did you notice this caption talks about COPENGAHEN?
Sigh. Yes. And Denamrk, too. We had to correct a whole bunch of photo captions in this series: GBU Editor
Tarantino’s “Basterds” leads world box office
LOS ANGELES, Aug 23 (Reuters) – Director Quentin Tarantino scored the best opening of his colorful career with his World War Two thriller “Inglourious Basterds,” which topped the worldwide box office after selling $65.1 million worth of tickets, its distributors said on Sunday.
The last time I looked, it was spelled ‘Bastards’. It’s not a typo either. The journalist has spelled it incorrectly throughout the article.

There is no such thing as a “Chevy Model T…” truck or anything else.
Reuters’ caption for the photo begins: “A suspected gunman walks…” Notice the object the terrorist is holding in his hands. It’s a gun. He isn’t a “suspected gunman,” he’s a “gunman.”
I think you meant actor Sam Waterson.
Yes, thanks. We corrected both names in the caption: GBU Editor
She? Do you know something about Seinfeld that we don’t?
No. We corrected the caption: GBU Editor
Your photo caption is wrong! The person in the portraits is Chiang Kai-Shek, not founder of ROC Sun Yat-sen. I appreciate if you could make the correction.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you had the right picture of the phone in your article? Nice article, BTW.
Yes, it would have been nice. This photo was not a good choice to illustrate this story, and if we did have to use it, the caption should have made clear what readers were seeing: GBU Editor
