HBO Haggard By Typo

Recently, HBO debuted a documentary by Alexandra Pelosi titled "The Trials of Ted Haggard." You know Ted Haggard as the evangelical preacher who, evidently, loves crystal meth and sex with men as much as he loves Jesus. If the Web site for the documentary is any indication, Haggard may also have a thing for typos.

Highlighted for your viewing convenience in the above screen shot, you'll notice that, between the main logo for the movie and the headline for the reviews (both of which feature correct spellings of the title), the copy promoting the DVD reads, "The Trails of Ted Haggard." Trails? Trails aren't one of the hallmark effects of meth usage, but are commonly associated with LSD. No word if Haggard was into dropping acid too, but nothing would surprise at this point. What about typos? They're commonly associated with slipshod writing and careless proofreading.



The "Trails" of Ted Haggard! Too funny! I'm picturing this Ted Haggard dude as a little snail, leaving a sparkly little trail behind him wherever he goes...haha!

Hahaha...I think many people would probably agree with your snail imagery in describing Haggard.

Happy trails to Ted!

Very true. With the amounts of sex and drugs Haggard has enjoyed, I'm sure it will always be happy trails for him.
