Picking through the trash in the garbage bin of life.
In the Army, it's a type of ceremony: de faulters parade.Cheers
In the sense the SMH uses it, they've made a spelling error. This kind of mistake is relatively common in the print media. Their excuse is deadline pressure.
They can't use a spell checker?
Maybe they need a falt-checker. BTW, I make similar mistakes, often having to stop myself writing 'kneck', which I presumably mix up with 'knee'.
I had to write TOUCH (in upper-case) several times today, and for some reason I kept writing TOUGH. Anyway, here's a poem about spell checkers.Candidate for a Pullet Surpriseby Mark Eckman and Jerrold H. ZarI have a spelling checker,It came with my PC.It plane lee marks four my revueMiss steaks aye can knot sea.Eye ran this poem threw it,Your sure reel glad two no.Its vary polished in it's weigh.My checker tolled me sew.A checker is a bless sing,It freeze yew lodes of thyme.It helps me right awl stiles two reed,And aides me when eye rime.Each frays come posed up on my screenEye trussed too bee a joule.The checker pours o'er every wordTo cheque sum spelling rule.Bee fore a veiling checker'sHour spelling mite decline,And if we're lacks oar have a laps,We wood bee maid too wine.Butt now bee cause my spellingIs checked with such grate flare,Their are know fault's with in my cite,Of nun eye am a wear.Now spelling does knot phase me,It does knot bring a tier.My pay purrs awl due glad denWith wrapped word's fare as hear.To rite with care is quite a feetOf witch won should bee proud,And wee mussed dew the best wee can,Sew flaw's are knot aloud.Sow ewe can sea why aye dew praysSuch soft wear four pea seas,And why eye brake in two averseBuy righting want too pleas.
