Have you folks come across words in books that made you laugh out loud? Words that are completely wrong but were not captured by the spell checker as they are proper words in their own right? Some of them are so utterly hilarious that I thought they might deserve their own thread for a bit of light relief.
I just read 'plutonic' instead of 'platonic' - hmmmm, what's Pluto got to do in a romance....?
My personal favourite was where the author described the tip of the male member as 'bibulous' (probably meaning 'bulbous') - 'given to or marked by the consumption of alcoholic drink'????
Has anybody else come across some of those?
