All books are bound to contain at least one typo. From time to time, whenever I read an old article that I did for my nation, or an assignment that was saved onto the cloud... I can see plenty of typos.

Just be glad it was not like that recalled cookbook that had a recipe that had a horrific typo: replacing pepper with people.

If it's called "How to Serve Man"... that wasn't a typo.
Even in Antiquity, all the good names were already taken.

Nope, not that. It was the Pasta Bible.

I have that. I was catching a train, needed something to read, and there was a sort of bookstall near the ticket gate. The Masta Bible was the cheapest thing she had.

I'm looking in it now. It's the recipe for tagliatelle with sadists and prosecutors and ... yep, there it is. Freshly ground black people.

If by "it" you mean it, then you're plainly wrong to deny it's existence. Contradicting yourself in fact, since you acknowledge the existence of it, and in the very next word deny it's existence.

"It isn't" is an anguished expression of nihilism. If you're taking drugs, you should stop! If you aren't, you should start!

I never had it. I only heard of it by way of John Green.
