Before the internet, most of our communication was verbal — we heard a word, deduced its meaning, and repeated it in future conversations. But since most of our communication these days is through text, be it via texts, email, or tweet, suddenly, it matters the way we spell words. And if you've been misspelling common phrases in goofy ways, well brother, the internet is not going to let you off the hook.
That's what's going on over on Reddit's /r/BoneAppleTea subreddit. These heavy internet users are collecting every moment that someone got a super-normal everyday phrase completely — and hilariously — wrong.
If you've ever said "bone apple tea" while presenting a home-cooked meal to a guest, you were okay. But when you type out "bone apple tea" to tell your friends you're running late to the restaurant? Get ready to be dragged.
