Is a Secretary Gonna Get Blamed for This, Too?

Is a Secretary Gonna Get Blamed for This, Too?

When I saw this caption at Above the Law in the post “Unclassy Action Lawsuit?” I couldn’t help but wonder if some poor legal secretary got blamed for this, er, typo – or misspelling the plural of a word that Urban Dictionary says is a synonym for “Hoochie Mama”…

Moral of this Story: Beware of using your spelling and grammar check only when proofreading, because the computer thinks it’s okay to leave a garden tool or some alleged Hootchie Mamas in your legal document.
