Some works have titles that could have come straight from Rouge Angles of Satin. Almost always, it's because some character makes a significant misspelling, so expect a Title Drop.

Compare Xtreme Kool Letterz.

  • Inglourious Basterds. (Anyone know why? The Other Wiki doesn't say...)
  • The Pursuit of Happyness, whose title is taken from a misspelled piece of graffiti.

  • Feersum Endjinn by Iain M. Banks. One of the narrators is an exceedingly poor speller.
  • Love and Freindship by Jane Austen is an Epistolary Novel whose narrator consistently writes "freind" for "friend".

(And yes, this would probably actually go at Delibratly Mispelt Tittle or some such, with a redirect.)
