We regret the error but not the ensuing hilarity

I can’t be the only one who turns straight to the “Corrections and Clarifications” column when reading the Grauniad:

Tom Hardy: ‘It’s a normal human impulse to watch two people kick the hell out of each other’ was corrected because when the actor Tom Hardy said he had been training two hours daily for his role as a cage-fighter in Warrior, he meant the combat sport “muay thai”, not the fruity cocktail known as “mai tai”.

Two hours a day of mai tai doesn’t sound that bad.

Update: the Grauniad’s corrections column had a reputation for comedic talent under former readers’ editor Ian Mayes, leaving more recent readers’ editors with big shoes to fill.
