Houston Chronicle, too. (The Houston Chronicle ran a not-too-friendly

series on the Internet a couple years back, so abuse of that paper was

common in a number of newsgroups for a while.)

The Daily Titan, the student paper at California State University,

Fullerton, is widely called the Daily Titanic; a parody version (which

ran only one or two issues) called itself the Titanic, too.

The Guardian (Manchester, England) is apparently known for making goofs

in its typesetting; at any rate, it is often called the Grauniad.
