This Puts the "Ass" in "Associated Press"

Via Kevin McAuliffe’s MetaBlog II, I want to also take this opportunity to point out that the following sentence appears in an AP story:

“The ingenious album reconfigures the trippy Beatles rock to jibe with the Jay-Z’s rough acapella raps.”

I won’t even comment on the fact that Jay-Z now apparently requires an article before his name. (Oh wait.) But I will say, for the record, that it’s spelt “a cappella.”

Don’t be snarky. I know how “spelt” is spelt.

One comment

The Robin says…

Man, everybody gets that a capella thing wrong. For a while I even spelled it a-capella.
