A Washington Post article about "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch is making the viral rounds thanks to an outrageous misspelling of the actor's name. But referring to the man who has become "a situation" for women everywhere as "Bandersnatch Cummerbund" was apparently a purposeful gag on the part of the writer, Lisa de Moraes, contrary to initial reports.
Of course, we couldn't help but feel this was a wasted opportunity. Why misspell a name so fraught with spellcheck danger only once, when you can do it repeatedly? Go big or go home, de Moraes.
To that end, here are some other ways you and your friends can misspell Benedict Cumberbatch in your text messages, tweets, tumblrs, and newspaper reports. You know, just wherever...
