Don't think--just use the spellchecker

I read this at Atlas Blogged, and am mentioning it here because it's funny and it fits well into my "General Stupidity" category. From Reuters, here is the passage in question:
Iranian Foreign Minister Moocher Mistake warned that a referral would have "consequences" for the West.
As Wulf at Atlas Blogged explains, his real name is Manouchehr Mottaki.

Maybe the editors have just given up and turned everything over to the computers.
