Freshly Ground Black People

Penguin Group Australia, the publishing firm that published a cookbook called the Pasta Bible, is paying 12,000 pounds to correct an embarrassing typo that appeared in the aforementioned book. A recipe for spelt tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto was supposed to call for freshly ground black pepper but instead called for “freshly ground black people.” An obvious spell check mistake quickly grew into an unwanted issue so the firm has already destroyed seven thousand copies of the book. Copies of the cookbook already in stores have not and will not be recalled because of the difficulty involved, though the company has offered to replace any purchased books with the typo if the owners so wish.
